    First hand accounts from survivors of the horrific camp in Sobibor can be read in the book "Escape from Sobibor" which was also made into a movie, I believe. October 14, 1943 was the date for one of the biggest escapes from concentration camps and little was known about the incident and the magnificent bravery shown by those who plotted in secret for so long.

    Night or Dawn by Elie Wiesel. Actually, almost anything by Elie Wiesel is a great read, but I would start with Night--it is a short book with a very powerful story.

    with the intention to extra helpful comprehend why the Holocaust got here approximately it is easy to comprehend the historic past at the back of the term anti-semitism. customary because of the fact the daddy of recent antisemitism, Wilhelm Marr (1819-1904) led the combat to overturn Jewish emancipation in Germany. Marr’s theory of antisemitism centred on the meant racial, as adversarial to religious, features of the Jews. His employer, the League of Antisemites, presented the be conscious “antisemite” into the political lexicon and customary the 1st general political flow based completely on anti-Jewish ideals. Marr’s generally-reprinted political tract, “The Victory of Judaism over Germandom,” warned that “the Jewish spirit and Jewish awareness have overpowered the international.” He spoke of as for resistance against “this foreign places skill” earlier it grow to be too previous due. Marr theory that earlier long “there will be actual no public place of work, even the optimum one, which the Jews won't have usurped.” For Marr, it grow to be a badge of honor to be spoke of as an antisemite. Over the centuries, antisemitism has taken on diverse yet appropriate types: religious, political, financial, social, and racial. Jews have been discriminated against, hated, and killed because of the fact prejudiced non-Jews believed they belonged to the incorrect faith, lacked citizenship skills, practiced business enterprise improperly, behaved inappropriately, or possessed inferior racial features. a majority of those antisemitism, yet enormously the racial one, all performed key areas in the Holocaust.

    "Maus II" by Art Speigelman (Maus I is about the preHolocaust tensions.) It is a graphic novel, but insightful, thought inducing, and not angsty. It is told from the perspective of the son of a victim. Quick read.
