Review This Product
Sat, 9 Nov 2019 | Review by: Terry B
The most heart-wrenching incredible book. Every person,Jewish or non Jewish should read this book. It details not only the plight of the Jews during that time but also how mob mentality works and how seemingly civilized civilians can turn into indescribable beasts. And how it could easily happen again to any race or nation if we fail to learn from the past.
