Just started re-reading 'Hitler's Willing Executioners' by Daniel Jonah Goldhagen. It follows the roots of European anti-Semitism from the middle ages to the de-humanising policies of National Socialism. It's easier to kill them if they're not human. It's surprising how co-operative the regimes were in most occupied countries in getting rid of their jewish neighbours. Hard going in places but very informative. Also just read (again) 'Whicker's War' by Alan Whicker who was i/c a film unit serving through North Africa and Italy. A bit lighter apart from the description of how he took the last recognisable photo of Mussolini before his broken skull collapsed. He got a front seat to history and someone paid him to record it.
