"A Hebrew University professor examines the genocide of WWII and its central place in Hitler's National Socialism, expounding on the theme that "no other event of the modern era has so fundamentally challenged the foundations of European civilization." Information like why some cultures, such as the Italians and Belgians, protected the Jews, while others, such as the French and Turks, were so willing to assist the Nazis is an example of the audiobook's relevancy to more than a single event. The text contains plenty of German names and places, and noted narrator George Guidall's velvet voice moves through them without a hitch, making an interesting story even better. J.A.H.
