Professor Engel dwells more on the reasons for the Holocaust than most accounts. His deep understanding of one of the greatest tragedies of the last century becomes apparent as he moves from Hitler's youth to the genocidal killings, starting in the last half of 1941. The lectures address the greatest question of how the Führer persuaded so many Germans to participate in his "final solution" for Europe's Jews. One can notice two minor problems with Engel’s delivery. One, he raises and lowers his volume to the point of dropping some words to inaudibility. Two, he adds pauses between words that interfere with the continuity. After some lectures, staged questions from an announcer and the speaker's answers simulate a classroom experience.
