Laurence Rees – The Holocaust: A New History

In conversation with J. David Simons

Laurence Rees’s The Holocaust: A New History attempts to answer two of the most fundamental questions in history – how, and why, did the Holocaust happen?

Laurence Rees’s The Holocaust: A New History is a landmark work which attempts to answer two of the most fundamental questions in history – how, and why, did the Holocaust happen? The author has spent twenty-five years meeting survivors and perpetrators of the Third Reich and the Holocaust. He combines largely unpublished testimony with the latest academic research to argue that whilst hatred of the Jews was always at the epicentre of Nazi thinking – and the Holocaust was the most appalling crime in history – what happened cannot be fully understood without considering the murder of the Jews alongside other Nazi plans to kill millions of non-Jews as well. Lawrence will be in conversation with the novelist J. David Simons for what will undoubtedly be a compelling discussion about humanity’s lowest point.
