The Zookeeper's Wife
The true story of how the keepers of the Warsaw Zoo saved hundreds of people from Nazi hands. When Germany invaded Poland, Stuka bombers devastated Warsaw, and the city's zoo along with it. With most of their animals dead, zookeepers Jan and Antonina Zabinski began smuggling Jews into empty cages. Another dozen guests hid inside the Zabinskis' villa, emerging after dark for dinner, socializing, and, during rare moments of calm, piano concerts.

May 1945. In the aftermath of the Second Word War, the first British War Crimes Investigation Team is assembled to hunt down the senior Nazi officials responsible for the greatest atrocities the world has ever seen. One of the lead investigators is Lieutenant Hanns Alexander, a German Jew serving in the British Army. Rudolf Ho┬Ęss is his most elusive target.

What We Knew : Terror Mass Murder and Everyday Life in Nazi Germany : an Oral History
The horrors of the Nazi regime and the Holocaust still present some of the most disturbing questions in modern history: Why did Hitler's party appeal to millions of Germans, and how entrenched was anti-Semitism among the population? How could anyone claim, after the war, that the genocide of Europe's Jews was a secret? Did ordinary non-Jewish Germans live in fear of the Nazi state?

The Master Plan : Himmler's Scholars and the Holocaust
Journalist Pringle tracks the work of the Ahnenerbe, an archeological institute of sorts set up by Heinrich Himmler to justify killing just about anyone in Nazi Germany who did not fit his idea of physical perfection. Manned by a bizarre mix of maniacs and serious scientists, the work of the Ahnenerbe included looking for the roots of Aryanism in Tibet and Bolivia and creating a skeleton collection by choosing among live Jews, gassing them, and stripping the flesh from their bones.

After Daybreak : the Liberation of Bergen-Belsen 1945
The liberation of Bergen-Belsen by the British in April 1945 was a defining point in history: the moment the world finally became inescapably aware of the Holocaust. But what happened after Belsen was liberated is still a matter of dispute. Was it an epic of medical heroism or the culmination of thirteen years of indifference to the fate of Europe's Jews?
