Summary: The Holocaustùthe murder of approximately six million Jews by Nazi Germany and its collaborators in World War Two ù is the gravest crime in recorded history, committed on a human and geographical scale which is almost unimaginable. To try to bridge this gap and better understand the true significance of the Holocaust, as well as its scale and magnitude, millions of people each year now travel to the former camps, ghettos and other settings for the atrocities. The Holocaust Sites of Europe offers the first comprehensive guide to these sites, including much practical information as well as the historical context. It will be an indispensable guide for anyone seeking to add another layer to their understanding of the Holocaust by visiting these important sites for themselves. --Summary: This guide includes a survey of all the major Holocaust sites in Europe, from Belarus and Belgium to Serbia and Ukraine. It includes not only the notorious concentration and death camps, such as Auschwitz and Ravensbriick, but also less well known examples, such as Sered' in Slovakia, together with detailed descriptions of massacre sites, as well as the ghettos, 'Euthanasia' centres and Roma and Sinti sites which witnessed similar crimes. Throughout the book there is also extensive reference to the many museums and memorials which' commemorate the Holocaust. --Summary: The Holocaust Sites of Europe is a thoughtful and fitting guide to some of the most traumatic sites in Europe and will be an invaluable companion for those who wish to honour the victims and to understand more about their fate. --Summary: Martin Winstone has done a service to all those interested in the Holocaust.
