A fantastic book. Difficult to read at times, due to the subject matter, but really good through and through. Recommended.

From two authors - a long time power player in Israeli politics and a crime novelist - comes this book that asks a hypothetical question: Suppose Britain had accepted the report of the Peel Commission in 1938 and Israel had become a state fully ten years before it actually did - could the Holocaust have been stopped, since the policy of Nazi Germany at the time was not extermination but deportation? This book suggests what might have happened. Includes a replay of the infamous Wannsee Conference where the Final Solution was crafted, as well as a surprising role for one of the architects of the massacre, Adolf Eichmann. Not a pleasant read, but an important one.
