Respected historian of the Third Reich and the Holocaust, Gotz Aly's books include Architects of Annihilation. Winner of Germany's prestigious Heinrich Mann prize, Aly currently teaches at the University of Frankfurt.
'Aly is the enfant terrible of modern German history. One of the most consistently original and provocative historians of the Nazi regime, he is an outlaw among Germany's academic fiefdoms, with a relentless passion for obscure hitherto unnoticed files and an astonishing eye for detail.' Daily Telegraph 'Germany's most influential popular historian' London Review of Books 'Gotz Aly is a highly original thinker who has made a range of breakthroughs in Holocaust Studies.' Raul Hilberg, author of The Destruction of the European Jews
