THE HOLOCAUST

THE HOLOCAUST

DVD - 'The Yellow Star'
"One hundred dead are a catastrophe; millions of dead are a statistic"
The horrendous observations of Adolf Eichmann.
This Oscar tm nominated documentary serves not only as a remembrance but a lesson and a warning for the future. It follows the plight of Europe's Jews during the terrifying period from 1933 until the final defeat of the Third Reich in 1945. Never before had the world seen such contempt for human life on such a grand scale, the murder of an estimated 6 million Jews, with countless others persecuted. During the 1930s a wave of national fervour swept through a tumultuous Germany; people looked for answers, and the politicians were all too willing to point the finger of blame towards the Jewish population. Few, if any, could have foreseen how the views of one man would unfold... that man was Adolf Hitler.

BOOK - "Even in death one could still tell the families - all holding hands".
For a modern generation unaware, immune or indifferent to the horrors of the Holocaust, these simple words throw into sharp relief the very real and very personal tragedy perpetrated by the Nazi regime. Mass murder was systemically exacted on millions of innocent victims regardless of sex, age or understanding of the horrific events unfurling around them. These were not frontline soldiers ready to die in the line of duty. These were men, women and children rounded up like plagued animals and slaughtered on an industrial scale. This fully illustrated hardback book hopes to convey the true tragedy of the Holocaust with detailed accounts of the numerous concentration and death camps, the men and women responsible and the barely comprehensible human cost.
