This series explores the major conflicts of the 20th and early 21st centuries. Each book takes the form of a 'timeline' of a particular conflict, looking in date order at 21 key events that shaped its course. Each spread focuses on a different landmark date and includes a description of the event, its causes and consequences, and a mini-timeline of related dates. In this book, the events leading to the Holocaust, its planning, horrific aims and organization are explored. Pages focus on key events, such as: the Wannsee Conference; the start of operations at the Belzec death camp; the Warsaw ghetto uprising; and the liberation of Auschwitz. The information is supplemented by quotations, statistics and fact boxes. The book also includes biographies of key figures and details of where to find more information.
