The World of the Holocaust Killers

Guenter Lewy

  • The first, solid, English language synthesis of the Anglo-German perpetrator literature of the last twenty-five years
  • Uses extensive previously untapped material, including officers' and soldiers' diaries, letters written by soldiers, and the record of the trials of hundreds of Nazi perpetrators by German courts
  • Systematically demonstrates that the perpetrators acted out of a variety of motives and that monocausal explanations do not work
