In this epic history of extermination and survival, Timothy Snyder presents a new explanation of the greatest atrocity of the twentieth century, and reveals the risks that we face in the twenty-first. Based on untapped sources from eastern Europe and forgotten testimonies from Jewish survivors, Black Earth recounts the mass murder of the Jews as an event that is still close to us, more comprehensible that we would like to think and thus all the more terrifying.
Groundbreaking, authoritative, and utterly absorbing. Black Earth reveals a Holocaust that is not only history but warning.
