Holocaust Landscapes
Holocaust Landscapes
by Tim Cole
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £16.89

5.0 out of 5 stars A Different Perspective to the Holocaust, 30 Dec. 2016
This review is from: Holocaust Landscapes (Hardcover)
It is only over the past couple of years I have taken an interest in the subject of the Holocaust which was fuelled by a visit to Auschwitz in November last year. Having read around this fascinating subject every book I have read has given me a deeper and wider perspective of the dreadful events that uncovered during the war years whereby Tim Cole's book Holocaust Landscapes without doubt, contributed to this.
I think this book gave me a view that the Holocaust was not simply centred upon the notorious sites of Auschwitz, Bergen-Belsen, Ravensbruck etc, but this warped ideology was played out over a much wider landscape within Central Europe. Holocaust Landscapes is well researched and material is derived from a wide range of personal narratives which make this a very "real" treatise on the subject.
I like Tim's writing style, as this is a very easy and enjoyable read which I would recommend to anyone interested in this element of European History.This book will stand proudly on my bookshelves with a range of other Holocaust titles I have acquired over the past 12 months.
This book as also got me interested in other work Tim Cole has written and furthermore the work he is involved with.
Well done Tim, good book and most enjoyable.

4.0 out of 5 stars Highly Recommended, 7 Aug. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very well balanced piece of writing, the author takes a 360 perspective when presenting his work. I have read quite a bit about on this subject but Osnos has given me probably the most authentic insight I have yet to come across. I would recommend this book and furthermore would love to read more of his work.

Well done Evan, more of the same please.

Enjoyed this and has added to my wisdom in terms of how I recognise situations in others and how I can manage myself better. I would say that it did ramble at times but the message is powerful which I have distilled what I can immediately use. A good book and I can see where its popularity lays.

Found this a superb read indeed. It whetted my appetite for more and I immediately ordered Leningrad: Tragedy of a City under Siege. A great book and it certainly connected me with a fascinating and moving theme in history.

I find this a fascinating sport and I connect with the Leadership element of it. It took me to the heart of the battle on the water and this book sits alongside Topolski's famous book. I love this stuff. Well done David.

5.0 out of 5 stars Patagonia is on my list of places to visit., 17 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
So nice to let yourself drift off into a South American world and imagine the journey. It was a really nice book and enjoyed the escapism. This book is part of the inspiration I have to visit the Argentinian pampas. I read this after reading Tschiffely's classic book of his journey from Argentina to New York so it was a nice follow on. I am a polo enthusiast and anything that takes me into the world of the Criollo ponies will always be special, very special. Thanks Tschiffely your books sit proudly on my bookshelves and will do forever.
