Scourge of the Swastika by Lord Of Liverpool Russell
Scourge of the Swastika

howeir, November 23, 2010

I read this book when I was a teenager in England, I was born in 1949. The book was an excellent presentation of the atrocities enacted by the Nazi regime. Russell supplemented his well written text with a number of photographs which made it hard to believe that any sane people could have acted in this way.
I now live in the U.S.A. and have both German and Japanese friends. We do not discuss the war, because that was then and we must move on.
The book did dramatically impact the way that I viewed religion and the concept of a God.
This not a book for those who do not wish to face the horrors of the past, but reading it may affect your attitude to recent disasters, Biafra, Uganda, Rwanda, to name a few.
