Book Review – Final Solution

by David Cesarani (MacMillan) ISBN: 9780230768918

In Final Solution David Cesarani delves deep into the real reasons that drove the anti-Jewish sentiment in Germany, and revisits the many factors that led up to the Holocaust. History has told this story many times, but this is an intimate and detailed look at a terrible period.

Using stories from survivors and their families, Cesarani reveals the true nature of happened during that time. With a factual tone and very little emotion, this is history at its most brutal and revealing. Accounts of torture, capture, horror, heroism and survival provide context for those wanting to learn more about the Holocaust, Nazi Germany and a most cruel World War.

It is an uncomfortable but insightful read.
