This book provides a unique socio-onomastic perspective on the Holocaust. The author’s impeccable scholarship and ability to craft a narrative structure that depicts the horrors of the Nazi genocide through personalized accounts of the victims as individuals is exceptional. This is the best book that I have read in the past decade.
