While there is no shortage of excellent scholarship and historical research on the Holocaust, there has been little that has adequately answered the vital question: How was such a nightmare possible in the heart of Western civilization? Historian Dan McMillan distills the vast body of Holocaust research into a compelling analysis that looks at a combination of factors—from Germany's failure to become a democracy until 1918, to the widespread acceptance of anti-Semitism and scientific racism, aftermath of World War I, and the class and political divisions it produced.
