Riassunto: A paperback edition of the important new illustrated account of the Holocaust from the distinguished historian Martin Gilbert, one of the world's leading authorities on the subject. It is the culmination of three years' picture research and draws on the massive permanent exhibition which is mounted at the Imperial War Museum, London. Martin Gilbert writes of the richness and continuity of Jewish life before 1933; the spread of Nazism in Germany and its victims; refugee havens, and the contribution of refugees to the countries that took them in; the 10,000 Kinderstansporte youngsters who were given safe haven in Britain; German military conquests and the further spread of Nazism, starting with Poland, ending with Italy, Greece and Hungary; life and death in the ghettos; and the German invasion of the Soviet Union in June 1941. Through the eight chapters, Martin Gilbert describes the mass murder, the witnesses, perpetrators and escapees; the resistance, and the Warsaw ghetto revolts; death in the camps such as Auschwitz, and individual acts of defiance and heroism, those who were betrayed, and the survivors. He relates the stories of the 'Righteous Gentiles' who risked their lives to save the Jews. He describes the death marches, the survivors of the camps, the liberation of the Jews and the aftermath; the war crimes trials from Nuremberg to Eichman. Finally, he addresses the questions that are still being asked about the Holocaust today.
Recensione: The almost unbelievable story of the Holocaust, told by the authoritative Martin Gilbert, is augmented by firsthand accounts and poignant illustrations. Owing much to "those who have assembled the basic Documentation,", his text is easy to follow and matter-of-fact, allowing the horror of the events to speak for itself. Gilbert's chronological narrative captures, in a tragically compelling way, the dark progress of the gathering evil--from a background of "century after century" of anti-Semitic persecution to the Nuremberg Laws and the death camps. Never Again powerfully counteracts the dehumanizing nature of Nazi extermination. As the statistics "represent real people," names are put to faces in photographs and the stories of individuals (some now household names) are told. Ending with coverage of survivors' postwar lives and the war crimes trials, which have continued practically into the new century, the book gives past events a closer reality. Peppered with "acts of individual and collective bravery," Never Again is also a reminder that hope was never extinguished.
As one of the first German books on the Holocaust stated, "Only if we come to terms with it and understand the lessons of those years, can we free ourselves of the legacy of Hitlerite barbarism." Completed by an extensive bibliography and separate indices of people and places, Never Again makes a superbly lucid and accessible contribution toward creating and maintaining that understanding. --Karen Tiley, Amazon.co.uk
