Holocaust Journey

Martin Glibert, "Holocaust Journey: Travelling in Search of the Past", Pheonix/Orion, London, 1998.

A world-respected historian takes some of his jewish students to many of the sites associated with the Jewish experience during WWII.

Another great book that I bought myself second hand in one of our local second-hand bookstores. Great in detail but very very readable. Very personal storytelling, rather than just dry studious text.

Some of the stories he shares on now non-existant communities is heart-wrenching.

"The achievement of Gilbert's Holocaust Journey is to reduce to comprehensible, human terms, the scale of genocide that to many is still unimaginable."
