Book Summary:

A book of surpassing importance that should be required reading for leaders and policymakers throughout the world For thirty years Ben Kiernan has been deeply involved in the study of genocide and crimes against humanity. He has played a key role in unearthing confidential documentation of the atrocities committed by the Khmer Rouge. His writings have transformed our understanding not only of twentieth-century Cambodia but also of the historical phenomenon of genocide. This new book—the first global history of genocide and extermination from ancient times—is among his most important achievements.Kiernan examines outbreaks of mass violence from the classical era to the present, focusing on worldwide colonial exterminations and twentieth-century case studies including the Armenian genocide, the Nazi Holocaust, Stalin’s mass murders, and the Cambodian and Rwandan genocides. He identifies connections, patterns, and features that in nearly every case gave early warning of the catastrophe to come: racism or religious prejudice, territorial expansionism, and cults of antiquity and agrarianism. The ideologies that have motivated perpetrators of mass killings in the past persist in our new century, says Kiernan. He urges that we heed the rich historical evidence with its telltale signs for predicting and preventing future genocides.

Book Summary:

Long neglected by European historians, the unspeakable atrocities of Franco’s Spain are finally brought to tragic light in this definitive work. Evoking such classics as Anne Applebaum’s Gulag and Robert Conquest’s The Great Terror, The Spanish Holocaust sheds light on one of the darkest and most unexamined eras of modern European history. As Spain finally reclaims its historical memory, a full picture can now be drawn of the atrocities of Franco’s Spain—from torture and judicial murders to the abuse of women and children. Paul Preston provides an unforgettable account of the systematic terror carried out by Spain’s fascist government.

Book Summary:

The enactment of the German extermination policies that resulted in the murder of six million European Jews depended upon many factors, including the cooperation of local authorities and police departments, and the passivity of the populations, primarily of their political and spiritual elites. Necessary also was the victims' willingness to submit, often with the hope of surviving long enough to escape the German vise. The Years of Extermination, the completion of Saul Friedländer's major historical opus on Nazi Germany and the Jews, explores the convergence of the various aspects of this most systematic and sustained of modern genocides. In this unparalleled work—based on a vast array of documents and an overwhelming choir of voices from diaries, letters, and memoirs—the history of the Holocaust has found its definitive representation.

Book Summary:

Although Auschwitz is probably the most well known of the Nazi extermination camps, it is Treblinka which is the most notorious. During the 13 months of its existence, 850,000 were robbed and murdered within its precincts. This camp, along with Belzec and Sobibor, also located in Poland, are often neglected and their history little known, despite being the locations where the Germans killed most of Europe's largest Jewish communities. Here, as opposed to Auschwitz, people were not imprisoned for long periods or exploited as labourers, but were killed off as quickly and effectively as possible. This study by a Polish new generation historian examines the structure and history of the camp.

Book Summary:

"Works of art like Art Spiegelman's Maus and Steven Spielberg's Schindler's List have earned critical and popular acclaim for their moving portrayals of the horror of the holocaust. Not everyone, however, is convinced that concentration and extermination camp experiences lend themselves to treatment in the visual arts and literature." "Persecution, Extermination, Literature discusses the difficult and delicate problem of how to approach the literature on the persecution and extermination of the Jews during the Nazi regime. Dresden's aim is two-fold: on the one hand to establish the conditions in which holocaust literature was produced, and on the other to explore the implications of the reader's responses to this writing. He argues that the subject of persecution and extermination makes it impossible to use customary criteria to judge works of art, and in so doing, he raises general questions about literature and reality, about the notions of authenticity and truth, and about the relationship between life and art. The unusual combination of a deeply felt tribute to the victims of the Nazi terror and a lucid investigation of the essential role of literature in keeping the past alive is presented in a series of essays, translated here for the first time into English."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Book Summary:

At the beginning of the German occupation, there were ca. 37,000 Jews in Lublin. The Nazis displaced more than 3,000 Jews of Lublin to other places, and for the rest of the Jews they established a ghetto in April 1941. In March 1942 ca. 18,000 of the Jews were deported, mainly to Bełżec; many were killed on the spot. In April 1942 the Nazis established a new ghetto, in the Lublin suburb of Majdan Tatarski; 7,000 Jews were confined there. In September-November 1942 the small ghetto was also liquidated. Dwells on the activities of the Jewish Council, as well as on the forced labor, Nazi expropriation of Jewish property, and the internal life of the Jewish community in Lublin, both before the ghetto and during its existence. Contains excerpts from the testimonies of survivors and numerous photographs of sites from the prewar and wartime periods.
