This volume will prove invaluable to academic specialists, students, and non-expert readers who insist on the importance of approaching the subject with empirical and intellectual rigor."-Alan E.

Steinweis "This brilliant compilation includes must-read primary sources, classic works of scholarship, and cutting-edge interpretations, assembled and introduced by a master historian and path-breaking Holocaust educator. An invaluable resource for students and teachers alike."-Doris L. Bergen, author of War and Genocide: A Concise History of the Holocaust -- Doris L. Bergen "A first-class anthology."-Sheldon Kirshner Journal * Sheldon Kirshner Journal * "[How Was It Possible?] should prove valuable not only to academic specialists, but to college students, their teachers, as well as for the general reader."-Jonathan Fass, Jewish Book World -- Jonathan Fass * Jewish Book World * "How Was It Possible constitutes an invaluable resource and should find its place in all libraries."-Jack Fischel, Jewish Book Council -- Jack Fischel * Jewish Book Council *
