    Review quote
    'A classic of Holocaust studies. No other single volume quite conveys both the sheer scale of the Holocaust, and the depth of individual tragedy.' - BBC History Magazine 'This book will be an essential part of the teaching of this sad, but sadly recurring chapter of History.' - Andrew Hunt
