Introducing the Holocaust: A Graphic Guide

Author(s): Haim Bresheeth

Reference

A moving and informative graphic guide to Holocaust.
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: A Graphic Guide 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 it plain, from Cambodia yesterday to the former Yugoslavia today.
Popular culture often portrays the Holocaust as a horrific drama played out between Nazi executioners and ghetto Jewish victims - in short, a single aberration of history. Introducing the Holocaust is a powerful graphic guide that dissolves this stereotype, explaining the causes and its relevance today. It places the Holocaust where it belongs - at the centre of modern European and world history. Haim Bresheeth and Stuart Hood - along with Litza Jansz's outstanding illustrations - bring a unique and unforgettable perspective to how we think about this most dark of shadows on human history.
