This book has been fully revised and updated to take account of recent world events. It traces the history of anti-semitism and describes the experiences before and during the Holocaust of Jews, Gypsies, and other groups deemed by the Nazis to be unworthy of life.

By following the experiences of four individuals who endured the Holocaust, Carrie Supple gives a face to the millions who perished. The themes she explores—collaboration, indifference, obedience, dehumanization, resistance, and rescue—make the book a valuable resource for educators and readers alike.

"Although there are few books which one can say in all honesty that all teachers in all subjects and all sectors should read, this is one of them."

- Times Educational Supplement

"I urge you to buy this book for your school, to use it with your pupils, even thought there is far more here than any teacher could possibly get through in the time available. Even if you don’t teach about the Holocaust buy it for yourself."

- Teaching History

"A magnificent work."

- Young People Now

"Full of illustrations and photographs and serves not only as a useful source for any examination of the Holocaust but also of the persecution of gay people, Armenians and Gypsies."

- British Sociological Association Network
