Peter Hayes has explored one of the most tragic events in the history of mankind, the Shoah (the Holocaust), addressing eight of the most common questions about this catastrophe: Why the Jews? Why the Germans? Why the annihilation, why so fast and total? Why more Jews did not reveal themselves? Why was there no help from abroad? What legacy? What implications? What lessons? Peter Hayes brings, with his 35 years of experience, a vision that allows to end prejudices and ill-founded opinions.
