A Difficult But Yet A Must Read

I have read many a book on the Holocaust this one stands out as one of the best. 

 Rhodes delivers a book like few others; the sheer horrific nature of the subject is delivered in such a way that pulls at your soul. A difficult book to read at times, but a must for all if only to remind us why it can never happen again. Rhodes gives a masterful mix of fact and firsthand accounts from both sides, and delves into the question how humanity can visit the horror of the holocaust upon itself.

4.5 Stars


  1. I've had this in my library for years and I really need to move it up on my TBR list- perhaps March. I've read about the Einsatzgruppen within other WWII books but not a dedicated read on this group. I'm sure the details of the heinous and wanton acts perpetrated by this group will make for some difficult reading.

  2. Well worth dusting off and taking a look at.
