The Holocaust researcher, S.B. Beit Zvi was born in Lita in 1906. He studied electricity engineering and worked as an engineer in Russia. On 1947 he has immigrated with his family to Israel.
After his son, Zvi, fell in battle during the Israeli Independence war, he changed his last name to Beit Zvi.
During the end of the fifties, while being active on behalf of the Soviet Union Jewry he found out that the Israeli society, the Israeli authorities and the Zionist movement have followed a selfish approach which puts the narrow interest of the struggle over the land of Israel above the importance of helping and rescuing Diaspora Jews, whenever they felt these two interests are opposed.
This conclusion that the Reduced Zionism prefers the means over the goals, has motivated the author to investigate the roots of this narrow Zionist approach and its implementation by the leader of the Jewish population of Mandatory Palestine during the Holocaust.
The author has also studied the Holocaust's historiography written by the research authorities in Israel. He has found an aimed tendentiousness in the history written by these researchers.
On 1977 after a long research of about 20 years, S.B. Beit Zvi has published his results in the Hebrew version of this book.
Right after its publication, the book has faced a wall of ignoring and disregard from the Israeli academic establishment. Only in the early nineties researches in Israel and in the whole world started to give the book the recognition it deserves and to adopt its thesis.
The demand in the USA for the results of the research led the publication of the English version on 1991.
Unfortunately, on July 1994 the author has passed away and did not live to see the distribution of the English version.
