Why Did the Holocaust Happen? by Sean Sheehan, R. G. Grant

The Holocaust was genocide of devastating proportions, perpetrated by the German government during World War II. During this time, millions of Jews were imprisoned or killed, along with Gypsies, the disabled, Communists, Socialists, and others. This book examines the Holocaust using well-balanced information supplemented by primary sources from the time period, sidebars, and timelines.
