"Quite possibly the most important Christian document to develop from the abysmal tragedy of World War II...A great book, a stirring document ... It brings home with the sharpness of a scalpel, as no history, no film, and no news report can do, the utter horror of the Nazis' 'final solution.'... No one who reads this will fail to be stirred by it."
