Prelude to the HolocaustBook - 2003
"Like a blazing fire, the news spreads across Germany: Adolf Hitler is Chancellor of the Reich! A million hearts are aflame." This radio report from 1933 announced the election victory of Adolf Hitler and the Nazi Party in Germany. Although many people celebrated, they did not know the ultimate consequences of Hitler's rise to power--World War II and the extermination of millions of Jews and other "undesirables" in what we now call the Holocaust. 'Prelude to the Holocaust' shows how Hitler's Nazi Party acted against the Jews, first by stirring up anti-Semitism, then by actively persecuting them, and eventually moving to the mass murder of millions of Jews and others--Hitler's "Final Solution." This book explains the ideas the Nazis had about race and how people around the world responded to the Nazis' racial policies. Each book includes: first-hand accounts from people involved in the Holocaust; an in-depth study of a key topic mentioned in the book; detailed timeline to help place important events; and a further reading and sources section.
