Text: English (translation)
Original Language: German
This is the currently definitive reference source for basic data on events in National Socialist Germany. Contributors include some of the former Federal Republic's best young historians. Over 3000 entries on specific subjects from Otto Abetz to Zyklon B are accompanied by two dozen longer essays on such general themes as the Final Solution and women in the Third Reich. The text is supplemented by over 1200 well-chosen illustrations. A felicitous translation further enhances the work's quality. Libraries that serve both scholars and general readers interested in the subjects it covers are well advised to consider purchasing this encyclopedia, despite its high cost. Many reference collections will certainly wish to acquire it.
