Black Earth: The Holocaust as History and Warning
Staff Review: Black Earth: The Holocaust as History and Warning
So often we hear, "How could this have happened?" when talking about the Holocaust. Snyder's book clearly lays out the Nazi strategy when it comes to dismantling countries and governments and how they were able to use the past misdeeds of a population to convince them that they were doing the right thing. Snyder describes how Hitler's methods could be used again during our time to lead to even greater death and so reminds us that those who do not understand and forget what has happened in the past are doomed to repeat it.
