The Holocaust by The annihilation of Jews during WWII is perhaps the most widely known genocide in world history. (In fact, the term genocide was coined in the early 1940s as a result of the systematic killings of Jews during WWII.) This book takes a close look at this particular period of history, from Hitler s rise to power and the growth of anti-Semitism to the deportation and extermination of the Jews. It also discusses the end of the war, the Nuremberg trials, difficulties that survivors faced, and how the Holocaust continues to affect us today.
