This review is from: The Holocaust Industry: Reflections on the Exploitation of Jewish Suffering (Paperback)
This book I ordered initially with a hope that it would help me balance my views. Firstly, I must state for the record, I am
disgusted by the suffering caused during the Holocaust and we must ensure it can never happen again.. ever to any section of the world's population. I have checked this man's subject references and can't fault them. He is un emotional, direct and favours no one in his work. I think it should be compulsory reading for schools; to balance the picture. I am doing a degree in sociology and this inflamed my interest in the holocaust. Finkelstein is absolutely correct when he asserts that this is not the greatest crime against humanity in recent history. The list could run on but suffice it to mention:
Native American Indians; Black Slaves; East Timor; Kosovo and lets not forget how many died in the two Nuclear Holocaust experiments in "World peace" the continuing generations of sufferes from that don't get much press sympathy. This book highlights the apparent American theory that morals and ethics apply to the others. Especially when Bush has gone on record saying that waterboarding 'saved lives'. God help us. Ending war and racial hatred would save more.
