Description

Few can deny that the holocaust was a shameful event in history. Countless books have been written on the subject. Movies have documented and memorialized some of the best people in the worst moments of WWII and the eradication of millions of people. What they don't tell us about is the view from the perpetrators. Until now. This book is not meant to glorify those that committed these acts but to simply tell history from their side of the story. The events in this book aren't glamorous. There is no flag waiving for Hitler, just the facts from a different angle. Learn more about why the German people were so quick to jump on the bandwagon. Why were so many good people willing to believe the worst about their fellow man? Find out what the turning point was that turned an idea into a law. What started out as a sentiment turned into a legal right of the people. If it's a law than it must be ok. Right? Find out what happened to make many people believe that. Read more about the other groups persecuted by the Nazi's. We typically are familiar with the atrocities committed against the Jewish people and POWs but there is little said about the other groups that were targeted. Hat other groups did Hitler want to eradicate? This book takes a rare look at what turns the average citizen into a racist killer. History needs to be told from all sides.

We'd like to believe that these people are born killers, that they were all mad. That's hardly the truth though. Some were forced into it while others were glad for the cause. This book brings that to light. Well written and easily digestible, this book is ideal for the young scholar or for those that are unfamiliar with this portion of history. I found it intriguing and saddening but well worth the read" - Greg (Manchester, UK). "My grandfather fought in WWII. He spoke little about it before he passed away so I read what I can find. I'll admit that I don't always have the time to dive into large books. This book was perfect. There's a saying that history is told by the victor. There's truth to that. We're often afraid to look at the losers side but in this case I think it needs to happen. It was difficult to read about these things but it needs to be told." - Sophie (Utah, US)show more
