A document alone, seen apart from its context, reveals little. Numerous documents must be read together to understand the meanings of any one. Viktor Brack’s suggestion that 7 to 8 million Jews be killed or Goebbels’ claim that Jews started World War II could be taken for the ravings of the insane. Placed next to repeated tabulations of how many people the Nazis planned to kill or had already killed, their words radiate much more ominous meanings. Only when read together with detailed descriptions of killing operations, can their historical significance be fully understood.
