9780007196043: Kristallnacht: Prelude to Destruction

One of our most eminent historians presents a powerful look at the buildup to and aftermath of one of the most decisive moments of World War II – Kristallnacht – not only for the Jewish population suddenly identified as a group to be destroyed, but also in terms of the international response it inspired and its larger implications.

In ‘Kristallnacht’, Martin Gilbert seamlessly combines a moving account of the suffering of the victims of the Nazi regime with a sophisticated analysis of the gradual process which made the horrors of the Third Reich possible. Broadening his canvas, Gilbert also powerfully depicts how the rest of the world failed Europe’s increasingly desperate Jewish population: in the aftermath to Kristallnacht almost every country was asked to help; most would not do so, despite the transport of a staggering 10,000 German Jewish children to Britain. This international indifference had direct implications for future German policy, while the events of Kristallnacht went on to radically influence the attitudes of governments – and people – outside Germany towards Nazism.

Review:

Praise for ‘Kristallnacht’:

‘An incisive, heartbreaking account.’ The Times

‘Horribly vivid…a book that makes the horror strikingly fresh.’ Observer

‘Gilbert’s meticulous documenting of the slope from discrimination to Kristallnacht to the Holocaust.’ Financial Times

Praise for ‘Empires of Conflict’:

‘Martin Gilbert is the most prodigious author of our time…He is a phenomenon who arouses envy among less productive professional historians…He has a fine eye for a telling passage and a memorable detail.’ John Ramsden, Financial Times

About the Author:

In 1962, he became research assistant to Randolph Churchill and, after Randolph’s death, succeeded him as biographer of Sir Winston Churchill.
