Description

Who needs yet another book on the Holocaust? Sadly, most of us. The vast amount of serious research work on the Holocaust never reaches the general public, and our notions of it are at the mercy of distortion and myth. As a result, it is regarded as a horrific drama played out only between Nazi executioners and ghetto Jewish victims - in short, a single aberration of history. "Introducing the Holocaust" dissolves this stereotype and places the Holocaust where it belongs - at the centre of modern European and world history. If such an event is not to be repeated, it is crucial to understand that genocide is a constant widespread threat to world humanity, as our news media have made plain, from Cambodia yesterday to the former Yugoslavia today. With a trenchant text by Israeli film-maker and critic Haim Bresheeth and the distinguished writer and broadcaster Stuart Hood, this book provides a clear and forthright guide to the horrifying relevance of the Holocaust for readers today. It is powerfully illustrated by Litza Jansz.
