"Fischel's important work will guide readers through the maze of names, places, acronyms, events, and concepts that made up the horrifying world of the Holocaust. . . highly recommended for all libraries."---Choice

The Holocaust was perpetrated by the Nazis as a means of eliminating the Jews from existence. It was an unprecedented event in history, inasmuch as a nation-state had never before targeted an entire ethnic group for extinction. Yet, more than half a century later, there is a tendency to forget, if not to relativize, the Nazi extermination campaign against the Jews. More insidiously, a vicious effort is being made in limited circles to deny the Holocaust. Historical Dictionary of the Holocaust: Second Edition is another reminder of what happened to Jews and other victims of Nazi Germany's genocidal policies

In the years since the publication of the first edition, a significant amount of scholarly writings have been published. This second edition expands upon the first with an updated chronology, an introductory essay, a bibliography, and more than 400 cross-referenced dictionary entries on significant events, personalities, issues, and films and literature. Libraries will find this research tool indispensable.
