Gr 6-8-Altman details the historical and political conditions that led the Nazis to power. She delivers a short overview of anti-Semitism and militaristic tendencies in German history and describes how Hitler's own hatred of Jews and charismatic leadership led to the German war machine that made the Holocaust possible. Considerable background information and some primary sources are included to help readers better understand the rise of the Nazis and the steps they took to establish the death camps. The author's discussions are balanced and easy to follow. The text is supplemented by rather pedestrian black-and-white photos. Although this book is accurate and would serve as a resource for reports, there are numerous recent Holocaust titles that are more informative. Earle Rice's The Final Solution (Lucent, 1997) is similar in content but provides more background and primary sources, and also includes a much better selection of photos. Barbara Rogasky's Smoke and Ashes: The Story of the Holocaust (Holiday, 1988) remains a superior choice for coverage of the entire period, giving readers a brief overview of the roots of the Holocaust and describing its horror in detail. The wide availability of recent high-quality Holocaust literature makes this book no more than an additional purchase.-Mary Mueller, Rolla Junior High School, MO Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.|
