Abstract:

Combines historical analysis and reflection with occasional citations of the survivor author's experiences. Deals with antisemitism, political racism and social Darwinism, Weimar Germany, Hitler and his ideology, the Final Solution, the various roles of people during the Holocaust (collaborators, bystanders, resisters, deniers, non-Jewish victims, and rescuers), children, the end of the Third Reich and war crimes trials, the question of divine vs. human responsibility, racism and neo-Nazism in the U.S., and Holocaust denial. Warns of the danger of a serious revival of antisemitism in the U.S.
