The Holocaust A History of the Jews of Europe During the Second World War by prolific historian Martin Gilbert is the most comprehensive one volume work on the Holocaust out thereIt begins with describing Hitler's rise to power and the history of anti Semitism in Europe during the 20th centuryIt goes on to describe the pogroms against Jews in Germany during the 1930's and the stripping away of their basic human rightsGilbert describes Kristallknacht and the destruction of Jewish homes businesses and synagoguesGilbert describes how during the Holocaust Hungary Italy Bulgaria and German occupied Denmark attempted to protect their Jews from Nazi genocide No Jews were deported from Italy to death camps until after the fall of Mussolini and the German occupation of northern Italy in the autumn of 1943The main theme of this book is hundreds of eyewitness accounts of the unbelievable horrors perpetrated against Jewish men women and children by the Nazis and their subordinates during the Second World War which resulted in the destruction of six million Jews including 1 and a half million Jewish children One is numbed by the sheer horror and bestiality of it all as page after page is filled with graphic inhuman cruelty and bloodshedParticularly heartrending is the way children were treated by the NazisIt is from eyewitness accounts that we discover how the SS used to amuse themselves by swinging Jewish children by their legs and then flinging them to their deaths Another eyewitness Maria Hochberg Marianska desribed the fate of Jewish children during the mass deportations in Cracow in March 1943 At Midday cars drove up before the institution The Gestapo men flung themselves upon the children Little ones three years of age were flung into baskets and placed on platforms or hoisted on to carts The older children were driven off to Plac Zgody flanked by armed soldiers There they joined the grown ups The baskets with the little ones were emptied behind the city like so much rubbish There they were thrown into a ditch most of them alive Some were killed with a blow by a rifle butt before burialDuring the liuidation of the Cracow ghetto several hundred small children were shot in the entrance to one of the houses and several hundred old people were killed in the street So we continue to read of the mass executions and torures and horrors inflicted on the Jews of Europe in these timesWe read accounts of Mengele's horrific experiments on adults and children and of Jews of all ages being thrown into furnaces and of course the mass executions of millions of men women and children in gas chambers and by shooting and then throwing the bodies and half alive survivors into pitsIt is simply impossible to document how one feels reading page after page these accounts of the scope of inhumane monstrosityAlso disturbing is the section on how after Nazi Germany was defeated hundreds of Jews were slaughtered by anti Semitic Poles and how Soviet soldiers enaged in the rape of Jewish girls who had survived the concentration campsOne of the photos in the photograph panels is a heartbreaking picture of a four year old little Jewish orphan girl shot to death with six other Jews by an anti Semitic Pole just after the warAs well as the six million Jews murdered another ten million non combatants were killed by the Nazis including a uarter of a million gypsies and millions of Poles Czechs Serbs Russians French Italians and GreeksPoles Czechs Serbs were to become subject people of the Germans in the New Order but only the Jews were singled out to be destroyed in their entirety Every single Jewish man women and child was to disappear so that there would be no Jewish life in EuropeSome of the parallels with early Nazi anti Semitism and the new anti Semitism of the 20th century are chillingFor example the boycott of all Jewish shops cafes and businesses in the 1930's in Germany is echoed by the calls for sanctions and divestment against Israel and for boycotts of Israeli products and businesses by academics far left politicians and trade unions around the world todayAlso the cultural professional and academic boycotts of Jews in Europe then are echoed by the cultural professional and academic boycotts of Israel and Israelis including the banning of Israeli scholars and research today in various universities across the world including North America and Europe70 years ago the cry of the anti Semites in Europe was 'Jew go to Palestine' Today the cry of anti Semites Yes anti Semites around the world is 'Jew Out of Palestine' The book documents how between 1929 and 1939 with the rise of Nazism in Germany a new wave of 250000 immigrants went to the Land of Israel Palestine the majority of these 174000 arrived in Palestine between 1933 1936 after which increasing restrictions on immigration by the British made immigration clandestine and illegalIn 1933 in reaction to the arrival of Jewish refugees in Palestine Arab attacks on Jews were launched and continued unabated until 1939Nazi broadcasts beamed to Palestine Syria and Egypt helped ensure Arab hostility helped ensure that Arab hostility towards the Jewish refugees from Nazism would be kept as high as possible In response to Arab terror and afraid of alienating Arab support the British blocked hundreds of thousands of Jews attempting to flee Nazi terror to enter PalestineHistory has shown that when anti Semitism is allowed to spread beyond the cesspool of the mind that contains it slaughter of innocents and the destruction of entire nations seem inevitably to follow Today Israel is about the size of the state of New Jersey with a Jewish population of less than 1% of the world's population Yet Iran's president says the Holocaust is a myth and Israel must be wiped off the map which would mean the genocide of another 5 million Jews nearly half of the world's Jewish population Over half of all Holocaust survivors today live in Israel as do many descendants of Holocaust survivors and it would be a hideous twist of history for these too to perish in the flames of anti Jew hatred as they would do if Israel was destroyed by forces of evil God forbid that this should ever be allowed to happen
