Hitler's instruments sought to conceal the mass extermination of European Jewry by deceptive language and by carrying out the systematic killing "in night and fog," thus allowing present-day propagandists to question or deny the very occurrence of the Holocaust or of Hitler's involvement in it. A British historian sets forth new evidence that on specific occasions the organizers of the "final solution" invoked Hitler's wish that all Jews be liquidated, a wish that corresponded to his virulent views. An impressive historical account by an author who seeks to bear witness to unspeakable horror and unquestionable culpability.
