9780060930486: The Years of Extermination: Nazi Germany and the Jews, 1939-1945

This epic book completes the richest and fullest study yet made of the Nazis' persecution of the Jews. Based on a vast scholarly literature, it also incorporates original research and personal letters, diaries, etc.

Acclaim for Volume 1:

"This will be the standard work for many years to come" (Daniel Johnson, The Times)

"There have been many books about Nazism's persecution of the Jews, but none as magisterial or comprehensive as this" (Richard Evans, Sunday Telegraph)

"The merits of this work are many; it is easily the best book of a distinguished historian. It is based on a great variety of sources, published and unpublished, and the judgement of the author cannot be faulted on any major issue...This is a very good, very important book. It needed to be written before the last historians disappear who, because of the date and place of their birth and their personal experience, know certain things in their bones about the period of the Holocaust." (Walter Lacquer, Los Angeles Times)

"Saul Friedlander is the most astute, sophisticated and stylish historian of the Holocaust working in any language today." (Michael Burleigh)

Review:

"This is a hideous history described with a blend of exemplary scholarship, spiritual detachment and intellectual humility that deserves the very widest readership.¿ (Richard Overy DAILY TELEGRAPH)

Friedlander is a world authority on the holocaust but he is also a survivor...his intellectual discipline may be that of the historian but his writing is animated by the passion of memory that only his generation can fully express. ( OBSERVER)

No one seriously interested in European history in the 20th century can escape reading this book. ( SUNDAY TELEGRAPH)

By the end we understand the events better than any previous historian has managed to explain it, while still feeling bewildered, belittled, and incredulous that it happened, let alone that it happened to him. (David Cesarani LITERARY REVIEW)

One of the many merits of Saul Friedlander's massive study of the years 1939 to 1945 is that it is as much about method as about content. (Peter Pulzer TLS)

Book Description:

The second and concluding volume of the definitive two-volume account of the Holocaust

Book Description HARPER PERENNIAL, United States, 2008. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 228 x 154 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. The enactment of the German extermination policies that resulted in the murder of six million European Jews depended upon many factors, including the cooperation of local authorities and police departments, and the passivity of the populations, primarily of their political and spiritual elites. Necessary also was the victims willingness to submit, often with the hope of surviving long enough to escape the German vise. The Years of Extermination, the completion of Saul Friedlander s major historical opus on Nazi Germany and the Jews, explores the convergence of the various aspects of this most systematic and sustained of modern genocides. In this unparalleled work--based on a vast array of documents and an overwhelming choir of voices from diaries, letters, and memoirs--the history of the Holocaust has found its definitive representation.
