Dissecting the Holocaust applies state-of-the-art scientific technique and classic methods of detection to investigate the alleged murder of millions of Jews by Germans during World War II. Among the questions raised and considered by the authors, each a specialist in a historical, scientific, technological, or legal discipline: How reliable are the claims of the eyewitnesses -- or the confessions of the alleged perpetrators? What do population statistics reveal about the probable number of Jewish casualities under Nazi rule? How strong is the evidence for murder in "gas vans"? Do photographs that seem to show Nazi crimes actually document them? What do wartime Allied aerial photographs of the camps reveal about the alleged massacres? Why are Bergen-Belsen and Buchenwald no longer classed as extermination camps, even by Holocaust true believers? What do the long-suppressed Auschwitz camp records, recently unearthed in the Moscow state archives, disclose about murder by gas at the most notorious "death camp"? Did the technology to gas millions, then incinerate their corpses with scarcely a trace, exist during World War II? Did German soldiers shoot hundreds of thousands of innocents behind the Russian front? Most important of all, dare one doubt what society has declared to be self-evident? Book jacket.

Dissecting the Dictator

An Essay on Tyranny

This book is not an academic paper. Not even close. Simply said, it is the musings of an old, tired editor and journalist on what might be one of the most daunting subjects in the history of humankind. The tyrant. This essay comes with the hope that we could, at least, scratch the surface, and if language permits, dig even deeper into the very bone and sinew of power in extremis. To stir us to further study, to look into the histories and the psyches, ourselves and others, for the reasons that move power to excess, its remorseless nature, its lust to lay waste all resistance and voices, the covetousness and avarice which make up a tyrant’s bone and marrow, and may I dare include power’s potential for good when stripped of its dystopian footings: this is my humble wish. To end with a quote from American journalist and novelist Henry Miller, who, in A Devil in Paradise, wrote what could otherwise have been an accurate description of the book you have on hand: “With its queer street names, its atmosphere of not belonging, its special assortment of gamins, urchins and monsters, who hailed from some other world, it was for me an eerie and seductive neighborhood.”

Children during the Holocaust, from the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum's Center for Advanced Holocaust Studies, tells the story of the Holocaust through the eyes, and fates, of its youngest victims. The ten chapters follow the arc of the persecutory policies of the Nazis and their sympathizers and the impact these measures had on Jewish children and adolescents—from the years leading to the war, to the roundups, deportations, and emigrations, to hidden life and death in the ghettos and concentration camps, and to liberation and coping in the wake of war. This volume examines the reactions of children to discrimination, the loss of livelihood in Jewish homes, and the public humiliation at the hands of fellow citizens and explores the ways in which children's experiences paralleled and diverged from their adult counterparts. Additional chapters reflect upon the role of non-Jewish children as victims, perpetrators, and bystanders during World War II. Offering a collection of personal letters, diaries, court testimonies, government documents, military reports, speeches, newspapers, photographs, and artwork, Children during the Holocaust highlights the diversity of children's experiences during the nightmare years of the Holocaust.

Holocaust Fiction

Examining the controversies that have accompanied the publication of novels representing the Holocaust, this compelling book explores such literature to analyze their violently mixed receptions and what this says about the ethics and practice of millennial Holocaust literature. The novels examined, including some for the first time, are: * Time's Arrow by Martin Amis * The White Hotel by D.M. Thomas * The Painted Bird by Jerzy Kosinski * Schindler's List by Thomas Keneally * Sophie's Choice by William Styron * The Hand that Signed the Paper by Helen Darville. Taking issue with the idea that the Holocaust should only be represented factually, this compelling book argues that Holocaust fiction is not only legitimate, but an important genre that it is essential to accept. In a growing area of interest, Sue Vice adds a new, intelligent and contentious voice to the key debates within Holocaust studies.
