Voices on War and Genocide

Personal Accounts of Violence in Twentieth-Century Eastern Europe by Bartov, Omer Code: 59237 Format: Hardback / 520 pages Publication date: 15/07/2020 Availability: Sold Out Price: AU $383.95
Taking as its point of departure Omer Bartov's acclaimed Anatomy of a Genocide, this volume brings together previously unknown accounts by three individuals from Buczacz, These rare narratives give personal glimpses into daily life in unsettled times: a Polish veteran of World War I, a Ukrainian witness to both Soviet and German rule, and a Jewish member of the Polish resistance. Together, they offer a prismatic perspective on a world remote from our own that nonetheless helps us to understand how people not unlike ourselves responded to mass violence and destruction.
