Despite the outpouring of books, movies, and memorials devoted to the Holocaust, a coherent explanation of why such ghastly carnage erupted from the heart of civilized Europe still seems elusive more than seventy years later. While responding to the questions he has been most frequently asked by students over the decades, world-renowned Holocaust historian and professor Peter Hayes brings a wealth of scholarly research and experience to bear on conventional, popular views of the history. “Why?” is an authoritative, groundbreaking exploration of the origins of one of the most tragic events in human history.
