Nice artwork I expected the storyline to be a little longer. Otherwise it's still a good read.

This is a great history-rich story telling the story of how come Magneto comes to his philosophy that he should stop the coming of another holocaust. It was an incredible story but as gbarchek has pointed out there isn't any Magneto using his powers to fight the "inexorable machinery of Hitler's Final Solution." as the cover puts it. This is an origin story.

If it didn't say "X-Men" and Magneto on the front you wouldn't know this is a Marvel comic. It's a look at the Holocaust from the very beginning of anti-Jew sentiment in Germany. As someone with family history involving this time I found this comic to be very hard-hitting.
