Engel explores the reasons behind the Holocaust and attempts to enter into the minds of the participants. From the origins of the idea behind the killing campaign to the notions of modernity that many blame for creating the possibility for such a happening, Engel offers an illuminating analysis of the 20th century's great tragedy.

Would you consider the audio edition of The Modern Scholar to be better than the print version?
This book is a compelling and though provoking guide to the Holocaust. Helps answer alot of questions like: why? and why didn't they help themselves? and finally how did a group of people get away with mass murder. Listen, you won't be sorry.

Where does The Modern Scholar rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
I liked it but this is not for people without a knowledge or background in the Holocaust studies. I have taught the Holocaust to HS students for 33 years and this gives me more in the subject to think about but I believe for the average reader this is going to be a siappointment.
