From Library Journal:

The first two volumes in this work on the Holocaust cover the subject chronologically and topically, while Volume 3 contains 100 biographical sketches of prominent, and not so prominent, individuals. Each volume begins with an 1871-2000 chronolgy, a glossary of terms, and a set of "Research Ideas" for students and teachers. Although the text is not sophisticated, neither is it "dumbed down." An examination of the picture credits revealed a few flaws, yet they are substantively correct and informative. Each chapter contains primary sources, which include an introduction setting both writer and source in context, along with a bibliography. The editors have generally chosen contemporary documents, with a few postwar memoirs by individuals such as Margaret Bourke-White and Primo Levi. The bibliographies are divided between those in the chapters, which are limited, and a longer comprehensive/topical one at the end of each volume. The comprehensive bibliography reflects most of the latest research and will serve a wide audience. Several of the research suggestions require access to individuals who not only lived through the era but kept memorabilia such as ration books. Other research suggestions, such as designing a Holocaust memorial, do not necessarily require access to physical artifacts. The chapters on the Holocaust are well done and should prove valuable as teaching sources. Recommended for public and all school libraries.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 9 Up-While most other reference books on this subject attribute the rise of Nazism to the terms of the Versailles Treaty and worldwide economic depression, this set digs deeper. Volume one begins with a discussion of events before and after World War I. It considers the growing nationalism of the European countries, the conflict within Germany that led to Hitler's ascension, and the conditions that led to Fascism in Italy, Japan's militarism, and U.S. isolationism. Volume two provides details about the Allied invasion of France; life on the home front; spies, secrets, and codes; major turning points in the war; fighting in France, Africa, and the Pacific; the defeat of Nazi Germany; and the use of atomic weapons. It also covers the ghettos, camps, resistance and rescue, displaced persons, the Nuremberg Trials, and recovery and war memorials. Each chapter ends with the text of one or more primary sources. Volume three offers more than 100 individual and group biographies. Illustrations consist of 800 black-and-white maps, charts, tables, and photographs. This clearly written, thorough treatment will be useful in both school and public libraries.
