Gr 6 Up--Illustrated with an excellent selection of period photographs and salted with pithy quotations, this succinct series entry examines Germany's National Socialist German Workers' (Nazi) Party and its unique place in history. In brisk, no-nonsense exposition, Lace sets the scene by summarizing the origins of German anti-Semitism and the Social Darwinism concept of the pureblooded Aryan, the rise of Prussia and its unification of the German states, and the political and economic results of World War I. The text goes on to profile Adolf Hitler, including such details as his life-long feeling that the entire world was against him and his apparent difficulty in telling reality from fantasy. The book discusses the Nazis' growth years, Hitler's seizure of power, the hatred and persecution of Jews, the eventual "final solution," and the Second World War with its Holocaust and mass destruction. A solid complement to Albert Marrin's Hitler (Puffin, 1993).
