"A fascinating work that overwhelms us with its truth . . . This book must be read and reread." --Elie Wiesel, "Chicago Tribune" "A classic story . . . Indispensable for the material it contains, for the soundness of its scholarship, and for Gilbert's ability to narrate and present this history in a style that bears the weight of the subject matter." --"The Christian Science Monitor"From the Back Cover:
