Dan McMillan presents his thoughts on the causes for the Holocaust. Dan notes the prevalence of anti-Semitism and political fissures incurred from World War I, to Germany's inability to become a democracy until 1918.
How Could This Happen is Dr. McMillan’s first book and is the result of nearly four decades of engagement with German history and the Holocaust. Reading Simon Wiesenthal’s The Murderers Among Us as a teenager, Dan felt compelled to understand how something so horrific could have been possible. His quest for an explanation has shaped the course of McMillan’s life ever since: he became fluent in the German language, studied History and German at Stanford University, earned a Ph.D. in German history at Columbia, taught at universities in New York, New Jersey and Illinois, read everything he could on the Holocaust and constantly refined his understanding of its causes." - From the web site http://www.drdanmcmillan.com/author/
