Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

An in-depth look at how The New York Times failed in its coverage of the fate of European Jews from 1939-1945. It examines the many decisions that were made up and down the chain-of-command at The Times - decisions that ultimately resulted in the minimizing, misunderstanding, and dilution of modern history's worst genocide. The fascinating and tragic narrative of Buried by The Times is unfolded by Laurel Leff, a veteran journalist and professor of journalism.
