Note: 
Lawton, a British Holocaust educator, asks how the Holocaust happened in a civilized society in the modern era. He discusses the historical roots of antisemitism and contemporary factors that increased the appeal of Nazism to Germans. There is a detailed presentation of measures that led to the Final Solution. The book is copiously illustrated with photographs and maps. Its information is divided into twenty differenct topics, each no more than two pages long. A list of important dates, a glossary, and an index are included. The photos and text are often quite gruesome. Lawton is also the author of another excellent book about the Holocaust, AUSCHWITZ.
