Críticas

Based upon a quarter century of interviews with hundreds of survivors and perpetrators of systematic mass murder by the Nazi regime in the Second World War, Laurence Rees, in his "The Holocaust: a New History", writes a deeply moving and harrowing account of humanity at our worst- and in a few occasions of extraordinary courage and compassion, at our best.

The "Holocaust" as an historical term is relatively new and indefinite. It is usually applied to describe the genocide that killed six million European Jews, but Rees argues that, although Hitler's pathological hatred of the Jews was central to the Nazi crimes against humanity, we should also understand the larger context in which the Nazis murdered millions of Catholic Poles, Red Army POWs, Soviet civilians, Roma and Sinti, Jehovah's Witnesses, homosexuals, political prisoners, disabled people and others- and planned to starve to death tens of millions of the "sub-human" inhabitants of the lands they conquered in the East in their quest for "Lebensraum" for Germanic settlers.

Rees also argues that the Holocaust developed chiefly in response to the events of the war. While Hitler always intended to somehow rid Germany of the Jews, the extermination of the Jews of Europe only became systematic with the invasion of the Soviet Union: and after all other nations, including the United States, refused to accept large numbers of Jewish refugees.

Auschwitz: I nazisti e la soluzione finale streaming e' una miniserie che parla di Auschwitz - il Campo di concentramento nato inizialmente come una prigione per i dissidenti politici, e successivamente un campo di sterminio in cui sono stati uccisi milioni di ebrei. Grazie ai documenti degli archivi Russi, diventati recentemente disponibili al pubblico, possiamo capire la mentalita' dei capi del campo, e soprattutto le motivazioni e gli obiettivi con la morte degli ebrei.
