A brief, often episodic account of Nazi measures, which proceeded at quite different speeds, and of the Jewish responses. In the beginning of Nazi rule, Jews were encouraged-by various means-to emigrate, but gradually the Nazi state expropriated Jewish property, and ultimately deported those who remained. A rather narrowly conceived study by an Israeli scholar, the book portrays some sense of the deceptively slow deterioration of conditions, as well as the complicity of so many Germans during the years of pauperization and deportation.
