The book shows with details the situation of Jews between the World War in Poland, Hungary, Romania and other Central East Europe countries. Compares different places of Jews in different countries, cause in Poland there was no ultra right/fascist military organisations similiar to Hungarian Arrow Cross Party or Romanian Iron Guard.

The ramifications of Mendelsohn's data are important and compelling. His actual writing, however, is quite dry. (I wish he believed a bit more in paragraph breaks.) Still, the book covers an important period in Jewish history, and it explains a lot about how the Holocaust played out in the years immediately following.
