Review

"The achievement of Gilbert's "Holocaust Journey" is to reduce to comprehensible, human terms, the scale of genocide that to many is still unimaginable." -- "Literary Review (UK)"

"Gilbert.... is a dedicated guide to this difficult material. We can be grateful for his thoroughness, courage and guidance." -- "Los Angeles Times Book Review"

"The achievement of Gilbert's "Holocaust Journey" is to reduce to comprehensible, human terms, the scale of genocide that to many is still unimaginable." -- "Literary Review (UK)"

"A powerfully moving narrative that reveals the deepest thoughts and feelings of 13 travelers during the summer of 1996.... Without overpowering his readers, [Gilbert] juxtaposes the histories of the places visited with descriptions of what they look like today. The overall effect is to make the past live by transferring it to the present, where it can be handled and evaluated anew." -- "America"

"A travelogue, spanning two weeks, of the essential sites of the Holocaust, by the venerable historian and author of many books.... [Gilbert] guides one of his classes on an extraordinary field trip.... He lectures at the most significant sights--of desecrated synagogues, book burnings, and gas chambers.... To these moving testaments Gilbert here adds the voices of his fellow travelers, both Jews and non-Jews, who draw closer as the trip progresses and they relive the terrible history.... The very best book for any Jew, or any human being, planning the same soul-searching trip." -- "Kirkus Reviews"

Book Description
