The extent to which Jews were being actively persecuted in Germany through the 1930’s was a hotly debated issue, with many apologists downplaying the centrality of race in Nazi ideology. This book, first published in 1939, provided a clear counter argument to this position. Based on official German publications and reliable external reports, it details the many methods adopted by the Nazi party against the Jews.
'A clear and comprehensive account of all legislation against the Jews which has been enacted in the last six years. It removes any idea that the Nazis start a purge against the Jews to divert the attention of the outside world from anything else, and shows how this unhappy race has been hunted down with relentless cruelty and German thoroughness.'-Time and Tide
