Dawidowicz provides a detailed account of the growth of the Nazis' plan to annihilate the Jews, and the Jewish response to the rising tide of anti-Semitism.
"The War Against the Jews comes to us as a major work of synthesis, providing for the first time a full account of the Holocaust.... Dawidowicz has produced a work of high scholarship and profound moral impact."-The New York Times Book Review
