The narrator, Gideon Shemer, tells about the spread of anti-Semitism in Europe by the Nazi movement and its leader Adolf Hitler. Among the events described: the rise of the Nazis to power, the Nuremberg Race Laws, the deportation of German Jewry, Kristallnacht, the outbreak of World War II, the concentration of Polish Jewry in ghettos, the Final Solution, the extermination camps, the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising and the extermination of Soviet Jewry. These events tell how anti-Semitism was used as a weapon against a nation that lost six million Jews throughout Europe and the importance of memory and commemoration to prevent this from happening again.
