The entire book by Robin O'Neil, "Belzec: Prototype of the Final
Solution; Hitler's Answer to the Jewish Question," is now online at
http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/belzec1/belzec1.html. You will find
a forward and introduction,16 chapters with extensive footnotes,
appendices, a glossary, and an extensive bibliography. This
original work was contributed to JewishGen by Robin and the online
presentation was done by Lance Ackerfeld and Max Heffler.
Robin says of the focus of the books, " What follows is the
background of how this policy of genocide was conceived, put into
operation and staffed, and how the ordinary men involved were caught
up in one of the blackest moments in human history."
This is not an easy read, by any means, but the scholarship will add
immensely to our understanding of the Holocaust.
