Holocaust Journey: Traveling in Search of the Pastby Martin Gilbert
Synopses & Reviews
In 1996 Martin Gilbert was asked to lead students on a tour of the places in Europe that were the stage of one of history's greatest human tragedies. The two-week journey that resulted, with England's leading Holocaust and World War II scholar as its guide, culminated in this powerful travel narrative.
Book News Annotation:
Documents a 1996 journey that Gilbert (Holocaust studies, U. College, London) took 13 of his graduate students on to the places in Europe that were the settings for the Holocaust. He juxtaposes the experiences and reactions of his students with the stories of the victims and survivors from the ghettos and camps, on the run from Nazi terror, or in revolt against it. Black-and-white photographs and detailed maps support the narrative.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
In 1996 Martin Gilbert was asked by a group of his graduate students to lead them on a tour of the places in Europe that were the stage of one of history's greatest human tragedies. The two-week journey that resulted, with England's leading Holocaust and World War II scholar as its guide, culminated in the powerful travel narrative Holocaust Journey.
Gilbert skillfully interweaves present-day experiences, personal memories, and historical accounts. More than fifty photographs taken over the course of this unique voyage are included, among them shots of Berlin, at the spot of the 1933 book burning; the railway line to Auschwitz; Oskar Schindler's factory in Crakow, Poland; and memorial stones from Treblinka. Together with fifty-five maps, these illustrations add an arresting visual dimension to this powerful story.
