Naturally I'm a bit skeptical on reading these titles so I wanted to run these past the forum members here and see what you think:
Laurence Rees "Auschwitz, a New History"
Christian Gerlach "The Extermination of the European Jews"
Christopher Browning "the Origins of the Final Solution" and "Ordinary Men"
David Cesarani "Final Solution"
Has anyone read any of these and what are your opinions of them?
In my opinion if you don't want to read gratuitous lurid details about what happened to the Jews, stay away from Rees or Cesarini - they made their
careers insisting that the horror stories happened and adding lurid details to sell movies, books, and themselves. Both are useless sources of information.
Two books I liked focused on the culture of the Jews - one is, "Founding Myths of Israeli Politics" Roger Garaudy, 1996, which includes discussion of the Holocaust, and two is, "Jewish History, Jewish Religion" Israel Shahak, 1994. Israel Shahak was a professor in Israel and got in a lot of trouble for his work - he points out that in their history the Jews hated non-Jews, hated Jesus, burned the New Testament, and their leaders didn't care about the poor in their own communities. So he debunked the image of the Jew as always being a victim, and always being liberal in their politics. And he coined a term "Judeo-Nazi" which reflects Israel's cruel treatment of Palestinians.
