By: Ruth Lichtenstein (Editor)

A welter of Holocaust literature has poured from printing presses in recent decades. Witness to history is a result of the best of this literature. A fusion of solid scholarly research and riveting first-person narrative, Witness to History's innovative approach provides readers with a comprehensive understanding of both the causes and the events that shaped the Holocaust. Five units cover the era from World War I through liberation in 1945 and, finally, contemporary views of the Holocaust.

The text interweaves academic content with personal accounts from a cross-section of eyewitnesses: ghetto-dwellers and resistance fighters, learned rabbis and innocent children, non-Jewish collaborators and rescuers all add their voices to the book. This volume provides unique coverage of little-discussed historical events, such as the fate of Sephardic Jews and the unique Holocaust experience of religious Jews. The eyewitness accounts, together with nearly a thousand pictures and dozens of maps, bring history to vivid life. Witness to History transforms the Holocaust from a tragedy of the past to a living experience, changing the reader's perception of history, the Jewish spirit, and the power of faith in times of adversity.
