In the process of relating these events, he provides new and incisive answers to a number of central questions concerning the Shoah that have emerged over recent years: who, inside and outside Nazi Germany, knew that Jews were being murdered- how responsibility for the genocide should be divided between Hitler himself and ordinary Germans- and how historians have tried to make sense of the Holocaust.

The book concludes by considering the legacy of Nazi crimes since 1945: the Nuremburg trials, the impact of the Holocaust on Diaspora Jewry (particularly in Israel and America), and the rise of neo-Nazism and Holocaust-denial. Robert Wistrich is Professor of Modern Jewish History at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, and is widely recognised as one of the worlds foremost authorities on the history of anti-Semitism.
