“Books about Nazism are endless, but The War Against the Jews comes to us as a major work of synthesis, providing for the first time a full account of the Holocaust. . . . Dawidowicz has produced a work of high scholarship and profound moral impact.”—Irving Howe, front page review in The New York Times Book Review
Here is the unparalleled account of the most awesome and awful chapter in the moral history of humanity. Lucid, chilling and comprehensive, Lucy S. Dawidowicz’s classic tells the complete story of the Nazi Holocaust—from the insidious evolution of German Anti-Semitism to the ultimate tragedy of the Final Solution.
“A literary-historical shocker . . . Lucy S. Dawidowicz lifts the bloodstained curtain from Germany’s war against the Jews.”—Houston Post
