    W G Sebald said that no serious person ever thinks about anything other than the events of 1939 1945 in Nazi Occupied Poland This amazing piece of work will go on to be regarded as the standard text on those events Essential reading for anyone wishing to understand the most inhuman chapter of modern history

  2. Bill Broome Bill Broome says:

    This is an unforgettable book A comprehensive detailed definitive history of how hate become pandemic created war and cataclysm I've read lots of holocaust writing and seen a lot of film But there is nothing else like thisThough lengthy I had to press on and finish I'm so glad I did

    What can one say about the Holocaust without diminishing its true horror and wickedness? I will not try but I will write a few words about this book which is the author's meticulously researched attempt to truthfully describe the events in Nazi occupied EuropeI spent nearly four months reading it – not because it was long and not because it was boring even though it did get bogged down with minutia and meticulousness on occasion Instead it was such a long slog because of the freuent need I felt for respite The details of how the leadership of one country planned organized and carried out over many years the attempted genocide of an entire class of people is disturbing in the extreme Personally I needed freuent breaks which allowed me to read several other books while this one would sit temporarily abandoned on the shelfI really hoped that this book would teach me why the Holocaust happened But unfortunately this uestion and a few other philosophical uestions I have remain unanswered I still do not understand and simply cannot comprehend how the people collectively allowed the Holocaust to happen Knowing that each and every one of us is cut from the same cloth DNA I realize that similar events could happen anywhere at any time under the right combination of circumstances Indeed much of what I see hear and read about in today's unhealthy and divisive political climate – much of it directed at unfortunate displaced and disenfranchised undesirables – echos the early tactics and rhetoric employed by the Nazis in their campaign against the Jews

    Man am I happy to be done reading this book It's good and I'm glad I read it But it is mostly a book about names rather than a book about people Very straightforward history stuff not much in the way of personal background info No established characters if you will Granted it's not a novel or a memoir so it's not like I expected The Diary of Anne Frank Now With Lots of Facts or anything I think one of the main problems is that this is an abridgedcombined version of two longer books by Friedländer The Years of Persecution and The Years of Extermination The intro claims that this book isn't meant to replace those two it's meant to get people to read this one and then seek out the full versions I kind of doubt that people who read this book are going to do that Otherwise why read an abridged version in the first place I've never read the originals so I can't say for sure but this felt at times clumsily abridged and combined It also seems geared toward people who already have a good background knowledge re the historical figures involved Mine is pretty shaky so the scant introduction to these people didn't help me remember who the hell they were when they were mentioned dozens of pages later Sure I could have Googled every name but then I never would have finished this Time was of the essence since this is a library book That is probably late In any case I gained something from reading this but think I would have been better off to read the original books which I now in all likelihood won't

    Not an easy read but essential to get an understanding of Europe in the 20th century The book is an abridgement of two larger books At times the narrative is disrupted or names are mentioned out of context or so long since a previous mention that I had forgotten who the people wereOne of the main issues the book raises is how the holocaust was allowed to happen in supposedly civilised Europe I kept thinking of Gandhi's uip that he thought European civilisation would be a good idea In almost mind numbing detail the book goes through how the Jews were rounded up in the Reich and in the occupied countries and shipped to Poland to ghettos and then to the camps for extermination The book has no maps which would have been helpful I suppose they were abridged outIn my own understanding I had thought the holocaust was a secret only revealed when the Soviets liberated the extermination camps in Poland in early 1945 This is of course not true and may have been the result of re writing of history in our education system or in society generally to relieve feelings of guilt This book makes it clear that while it may not have been publicly reported much in Europe due to Nazi control of the media ordinary people all over Europe knew what was happening to the Jews departed to Poland Reports were sent to the Red Cross and to various governments and to the VaticanOne aspect of the holocaust not so well covered in the book is the involvement of ordinary people from many European countries in the exterminations This is covered much better by Inga Clendinnenin Reading the HolocaustOverall a book everyone should read but probably not one for re reading

    Disturbing yet still fascinating in its detail I used Friedlander's unabridged version as a source for a paper on the Shoah a few years back and it was dense but useful This much shorter version isn't perfect editing could have been precise but it stands to be as valuable for the student of Holocaust studies as the original I must agree with another reviewer that Dr F's constant use of personal names slows the reading and can interfere with the narrative flow without adding that much to the story I understand however that Friedlander wanted to make this personal these were actual people families neighborhoods towns cities that were being systematically slaughteredDue respect should be given the author and his 'life partner' who did the abridged versionthat he shared the blame in this book The US France the Swiss the Catholic Church and others all stood by dispassionately as perhaps 8 million Jews Gypsies and Homosexuals were massacred The shame should never be forgotten A job well done for a subject matter that should never be far from our national consciousness

  7. Jennifer Jennifer says:

    An absolute must read for anyone studying WWII and the Holocaust The reader is able to see the big picture of the horrific events of the war and the atrocities committed against the Jews At times the book is incredibly difficult to take in as it should be I loved that it was a comprehensive history of the war but has victim testimony intermixed

  8. Sarah Sarah says:

    Nazi Germany and the Jews A painstaking account of the Holocaust This book felt endless and I think that was exactly the way it should have felt For readers like me with pretty much zero background in this history the author's constant introduction of new names and places will be hard but not impossible to follow

  9. Steve Steve says:

    An interesting read and this is like 2 books in one This details the beginning of the Holocaust The German campaign to exterminated the Jews in Europe during World War II which involves the transporting to the concentration camps where many were killed by firing suads gas chambers and medical experiments

  10. Crystal Toller Crystal Toller says:

    Nazis Jewish PoliciesThis book details the policies of Nazi Germany and Adolf Hitler up until the start of the war It was very detailed and provided a lot of new information to me I highly recommend this book
