The World Must Know depicts the evolution of the Holocaust comprehensively, as it is presented in the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum.
The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.D., honors the six-million Jews and millions of other victims of the Nazis during World War II—a memorial to the past and a living reminder of the moral obligations of societies and individuals. The World Must Know documents the compelling human stories of the Holocaust as told in the Museum's renowned Permanent Exhibition. This second edition is based on the substantive increase in knowledge of the Holocaust over the past dozen years and information from archives that had been inaccessible to researchers until after the collapse of the Soviet Union and the communist regimes of Easten and Central Europe.
This revised edition is enhanced with new insights and updates based on archival information that had been inaccessible to researchers until after the collapse of the Soviet Union and the Communist regimes of Eastern and Central Europe. It includes new photographs, redrawn charts, a new section on the Holocaust in Greece, an updated bibliography, and a new foreword by the museum director.
"The World Must Know by Michael Berenbaum is a skillfully organized and clearly told account of the German Holocaust that consumed, with unparalleled malevolence, six million Jews and millions of innocent others—Protestants, Catholics, Poles, Russians, Gypsies, the handicapped, and so many others, adults and children. This important book, a vital guide through the unique corridors of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C., merits the widest of audiences." —Chaim Potok, author of The Chosen and The Promise
