“Hilton and Patt’s wide-ranging volume combines authoritative surveys of key aspects of the Holocaust—from antisemitism to postwar justice—with practical guides of using survivor testimonies, photographs, museums, and more with students. This book will help anyone involved in teaching about a subject that remains as challenging as it is urgent.”
—Doris Bergen, author of War and Genocide: A Concise History of the Holocaust
