What's it about?

The Holocaust, also known as Shoah—the Hebrew word for catastrophe, was one of the darkest periods in human history. During World War II, the Nazis orchestrated and carried out the mass murder of over six million Jews as well as persecuting, imprisoning, and murdering millions of other so-called undesirables such as homosexuals, and political dissidents. In this collection, you'll explore the remarkable stories of those who survived the Nazi death camps, the resistance fighters who put their lives on the line, and reflect upon the tragic fate of those who didn’t make it home alive.
