    Overview

    Summary
    Written by one of the world's most respected scholars on the Holocaust, this book evokes the multigenerational legacy of Nazi violence among perpetrators including German businesses that used slave labor (to this day paying only symbolic reparations) and those who ran the agencies that early on euthanized German children, elderly, and the infirm--the basis for the horrors to follow--as well as accounts for the various forms of persecution throughout Germany and beyond, including regions where perpetrators were put on trial and those where they evaded responsibility.
