19 Best Holocaust Books of All Time

Our goal: Find what the internet ranks as the best Holocaust books (instead of one person's opinion).

    Our process:
  1. Search for "best holocaust books" and study the top 5 articles.
  2. Add only the books mentioned 2+ times.
  3. Rank the results neatly for you here! 😊
    (This took a long time, but we do the research so you don't have to!)
