The Origins of the Final Solution: The Evolution of Nazi Jewish Policy, September 1939-March 1942
University of Nebraska Press, 2007 - 615 pages
Published by the University of Nebraska Press, Lincoln, and Yad Vashem, Jerusalem
In 1939, the Nazi regime's plans for redrawing the demographic map of Eastern Europe entailed the expulsion of millions of Jews. By the fall of 1941, these plans had shifted from expulsion to systematic and total mass murder of all Jews within the Nazi grasp. The Origins of the Final Solution is the most detailed and comprehensive analysis ever written of what took place during this crucial period—of how, precisely, the Nazis' racial policies evolved from persecution and “ethnic cleansing” to the Final Solution of the Holocaust.
