Editorial Reviews

Booknews
With Facing a Holocaust, Engel (modern Jewish history, NYU) concludes the exploration of the Polish government-in-exile's shifting responses toward the plight of European Jews during the Second World War that he began in The Shadow of Auschwitz. He focuses here on the critical period after the free world became aware of Nazi Germany's plan to destroy every Jew within reach, of the existence of an apparatus for carrying out that intent, and of the fact that the victims of the Nazi murder campaign already numbered in the millions.
