Format: Hardcover
Gideon Hausner, the chief Prosecutor at the trial of Adolf Eichmann, has produced this one-volume encyclopedia on the Holocaust. It includes countless testimonies and personalities, seldom-published photos of Eichmann, reactions to the trial in the world's press, Hausner's own reflections three years afterwards, and much more.

Hausner rejects the tendency to dichotomize Germans and Nazis: "The admiration of power and belief in the destiny of Germany to dominate the world had for a long time been part of the German people's heritage. Fichte and Hegel had developed the idea of the absolute superiority of the state...Germany had long cultivated a whole range of gratuitous enemies of her own choice. Poland was as `the natural enemy'..." (pp. 18-19). "The Germans prefer to believe that almost anyone, everywhere, if adequately conditioned by the propaganda of a dictatorship, could become a concentration-camp murderer, but they fail to add that this conditioning took place and was possible in Germany after over a century of indoctrination by the glorification of war and race hatred. It was this nation that freely gave the largest number of votes to a ruler who had openly proclaimed that he would unflinchingly plunge the country into war, who announced in advance that he would suffer no democratic nonsense but would govern by the FUEHRERPRINZIP...Whether the same thing could have happened in another country, after similar preparation, is debatable. Perhaps it could. But it DID happen to Germany, which committed the unprecedented act of genocide, and which started two aggressive world wars in one generation." (p. 450)

European Jews were slow to grasp the enormity of the calamity befalling them owing to their ingrained pro-German mindset.

3 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Etienne Lorenceau on January 1, 2003
Format: Hardcover
Naturally G. Hausner was prejudiced: any decent human being could not avoid it. Yet Gideon Hausner manages to be very factual and to proceed honestly in his search for the truth. His capacity to reconsider his own beliefs gives his book an uncommon depth. The chapters on the allies complacency (around the end of the book) should induce us to follow the author's path and reconsider some of our views on the official occidental good conscience. This is a major book on the holocaust. I would rank it right after Raul Hilberg's one on the destruction of the European Jews and just before Heinz Hoehne's one on the order of the death head. One additional point which may seem out of place when dealing with such a subject: it's very nicely written and easy to read.
