Cambridge, MA: The Belknap Press of Harvard University Press, 2011. First American Edition. Hardcover. "From January 1945, in the last months of the Third Reich, about 250,000 inmates of concentration camps perished on death marches and in countless incidents of mass slaughter. They were murdered with merciless brutality by their SS guards, by army and police units, and often by gangs of civilians as they passed through German and Austrian towns and villages. Even in the bloody annals of the Nazi regime, this final death blow was unique in character and scope. In this first comprehensive attempt to answer the questions raised by this final murderous rampage, the author draws on the testimonies of victims, perpetrators, and bystanders. Hunting through archives throughout the world, Daniel Blatman sets out to explain- to the extent that is possible- the effort invested by mankind's most lethal regime in liquidating the remnants of the enemies of the "Aryan race" before it abandoned the stage of history." (from front flap) The most thorough & utterly devastating account of the final chapter of the "Final Solution" - the Nazi-led genocide of the Jewish people during World War II known as the Holocaust.
