The bibliography will critically look into the topic of study to give a clear insight of what genocide was like in the 20th century Nazi Germans against Jews. Each source will be critically evaluated so that a strong argument can be formulated about genocidal conflict.

This work has detailed information and provides an excellent treatment to Holocausts. it provides a very good understanding to a non-holocaust scholar and the usefulness of their calculations of the total genocide. In the appendix I, the author provides a country by country statistical summary and an analysis of the genocide. This source postulates that 4,204,400 to 4,575,400 Jews were murdered (p.545). This is the lowest count of the genocide cases by any reputable study. This resource will help me compare the statistics with other statistical data from other sources about the genocide so that concise and precise information can be arrived at. Gerald work will also help me generate a good understanding of holocaust to be able to provide deeper understanding of Nazi army and Jews murders.
Fein, Helen, Accounting for Genocide: National Responses and Jewish Victimization During the Holocaust. New York: The Free Press. 468 p. 1979.
Work done by Fein 1979 is a unique social science and statistical attempt to elucidate the holocaust. This work includes multiple regressions to analyze genocide cases. This resource provides valuable information in form of tables highlighting holocaust. Fein work provides that 4,610000 Jews were murdered during the genocide (p.21) without counting the USSR deaths (P.21). This work compares a variety of genocide estimates of the holocaust and provides rationale for the differences. This work concludes that all sources postulate that there is likelihood that true estimates lies between five and six million (p. 23).This work will help me generate true conception of genocide estimates of the holocaust.

Majority of the maps provides statistics of the genocide for instance, one map gives a toll buy each country of slightly over 5,750,000 (pp.244-245). This work will help me identify different places and countries wherever the genocide occurred and where it was intensive. It will also help me develop an understanding of Jewish communities’ populations in Europe countries in the 20th century.

This work like others provides that an estimate of about 5,100,000 jaws were murdered. This work will help me develop a literature review of holocaust and use systematic statistical data to compare with other resources so that a more concise estimate of the genocide will be calculated and recorded.
