The Holocaust Chronicle
The Holocaust Chronicle recounts the anguishing story of the most terrible crime of the 20th century. During World War II, six million Jews-as well as other targeted groups including Poles, the handicapped, and homosexuals-were systematically murdered by Adolf Hitler's Nazi Germany and its collaborators. Although the weight and heft of The Holocaust Chronicle cannot capture the immensity of its subject, the book's 768 pages suggest that the Holocaust is a topic that must be openly confronted. Written and fact-checked by top scholars, the book offers:
- A 3,000-item timeline pinpointing specific events that contributed to the Holocaust, such as Nazi Germany occupation during World War II, the sealing of urban ghettos in Europe, and the deportation of millions of Jews to death camps.
- Nearly 2,000 photographs chronicling the Holocaust in starkly visual terms, including images of the massacre of more than 33,000 Ukrainian Jews at Babi Yar and pictures from the liberation of Auschwitz and other concentration camps.
- Fourteen chapter-opening essays that put the most important years of the Holocaust and its immediate aftermath into perspective, beginning with Hitler's rise to power and ending with the convictions of such Nazi officials as Hermann Göring at the Nuremberg Trial.
- More than 250 sidebars detailing the significant places, issues, events, and people of the Holocaust, including Anne Frank and Heinrich Himmler.
- An extensive prologue and epilogue that discuss the buildup to and aftermath of the Holocaust.
The Holocaust Chronicle is a not-for-profit enterprise made available at a low price to allow widespread distribution. The book is part of Legacy Publishing's historical series.
