Summary

Summary

Adolf Hitler and the other leaders of Nazi Germany were responsible for the Holocaust -- the murder of 11 million people, including 6 million Jews. As the tide of World War II turned against Germany, the Nazi leaders tried to cover their tracks. Meanwhile, the Americans, British, and Soviets were laying the foundation for an international tribunal of justice. The crimes and criminals of the Holocaust had taught the world one thing: Something had to be done to prevent such horrors from happening again. In Crimes and Criminals of the Holocaust, author Linda Jacobs Altman examines the search for justice after the Holocaust. From the end of World War II to the Nuremberg Trials to the hunt for Nazi fugitives, Altman gives gripping accounts of criminals being caught and punished. Book jacket.

Booklist Review

Reviewed with Linda Jacobs Altman's Impact of the Holocaust0 . Gr. 5-10. Like Altman's Forgotten Victims of the Holocaust 0 (2003) and other books in the accessible Holocaust in History series, these titles cover the facts without sensationalism and raise important issues about evil and human rights for class discussion. Crimes 0 focuses on the end of World War II and the Nuremberg trials as well as cases of such war criminals as Adolf Eichmann. Eyewitness accounts and archival photos on every double-page spread document horrific crimes, including doctors' brutal experiments on prisoners. That excuse "I was just following orders" raises elemental questions about personal responsibility. Impact0 discusses the influence the Holocaust had on the quest for a Jewish homeland and the creation of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. The focus is always on the idea that ordinary people committed the evil. Primo Levi's name is misspelled, but otherwise the documentation is excellent. --Hazel Rochman Copyright 2004 Booklist
