This review is from: A Small Town Near Auschwitz: Ordinary Nazis and the Holocaust (Hardcover)
I heard the author talk about this book, and ( surely, as the publishers must hope and plan) bought it. Not the usual subject matter for reading over the Christmas break, but I was wholly absorbed and horrified at the same time, literally could not consider reading anything else until I finished it. This book provides such clear and convincing arguments about how the Holocaust came about. Ordinary German townspeople in a small town and their Polish and their Jewish neighbours being displaced, then so many 'deported' . The tragedy is brought to life by such clear writing about death.
