Summary

Voices from the Holocaust follows the whole history of the Shoah, from Hitler's rise to power to the Nuremburg trials. But while the beginning stages of the Holocaust are discussed in detail, it is, of course, the later years of the atrocities that are focused on; the exterminations and death camps of The Final Solution take center stage. This intense and important collection of firsthand accounts tells the story from the perspective of the people who were there, and were witnesses-on both sides of the horror. There have been untold numbers of works studying the Holocaust in every imaginable way, but this anthology of eyewitness testimonies to the horrors is remarkable for its depth and thoroughness. You will be able to see firsthand all the terrible acts that went on during this horrific time in our history. While some of the eyewitnesses are well-known, such as Anne Frank, Primo Levi, and Heinrich Himmler, the book also includes recollections of camp inmates, SS Totenkopf guards, and the British soldiers who liberated Belsen. This is history seen not from the objective distance of a scholar or historian, but directly by those on the front lines. Shocking, powerful, and personal, Voices from the Holocaust retells history, written by those who were there.
