Note: 
The first edition of this unflinching look at the Holocaust was written in 1988 and represented a significant contribution to books about the Holocaust for young people. Here, much new information has been added: the role of "ordinary" Germans in the Final Solution, the German's attempts to hide their crimes, the Allies' decision not to bomb the raillines to Auschwitz and more. A chapter called "The Uniqueness of the Holocaust" lists recent atrocities and hate crimes, such as the murder of a gay man, Matthew Shepard, and of a Black man, James Byrd Jr.. The Holocaust denial trial in which David Irving sued Deborah Lipstadt and lost is also mentioned. One of the very best treatments of the Holocaust for young people.
