This title explores the various debates surrounding the Holocaust. As well as describing the main events, the book consists of three different kinds of panels that appear throughout - the first examining events in question, the second examining key people (eg leaders), the third following the intriguing 'what if' approach - for example for this title, 'what if Jewish people had been allowed to emigrate?'. Split up into thematically-based chapters, the book clearly and logically examines the many questions raised both at the time of the Holocaust, and since, with facts and opinions from leading historians. Complete with full colour photographs, maps and detailed timeline and glossary.>
