The second and concluding volume of the definitive two-volume account of the HolocaustWith THE YEARS OF EXTERMINATION, Friedlander completes his work on Nazi Germany and the Jews.

The book describes and interprets the history of the persecution and murder of the Jews throughout occupied Europe.

The implementation of German extermination policies and measures depended on the submissiveness of political authorities, the assistance of local police forces and the passivity or co-operation of the populations, primarily of their political and spiritual elites.

The implementation also depended on the readiness of the victimes to submit to orders, often with the hope of modifying them or surviving long enough to escape the German vice. This multifaceted representation - at all levels and in all different places - enhances the perception of the magnitude, complexity and interrelatedness of the multiple components of this history.

Based on a vast variety of documents and an overwhelming choir of voices, Friedlander manages to avoid domesticating the memory of unparalleled and horrific events.

The convergence of these various aspects gives THE YEARS OF EXTERMINATION its unique aulity.

In this work the history of the Holocaust has found its definitive representation.
