The Holocaust and Other Genocides: An Introduction - Wichert ten Have and Barbara Boender

Richelle Budd Caplan
  1. With the exception of the article about the Holocaust, all of the other articles of this book are in chronological order. I would like to thank Shulamit Imber, Pedagogical Director of the International School for Holocaust Studies, for drawing this point to my attention.
  2. On December 12, 2012, during his presentation in Liege, Belgium, Dr. Wichert Ten Have continuously referred to this resource as a “handbook.” Moreover, during a discussion in Liege on December 11, Ten Have clarified during a conversation with this author that this is a handbook for teachers - and not a textbook for students. 
  3. I would like to thank Daniel Rozenga of the European Department of the International School for Holocaust Studies of Yad Vashem for highlighting this specific point.
