Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Expertly conducted, candid interviews with Jan Karski, Elie Wiesel, Yitzhak Arad, and nine others. A new sense of insight into the Holocaust. A very readable, current book." — Library Journal

"This excellent volume includes essays by scholars of history, literature, religion, and philosophy and approaches the theme of uniqueness and the Holocaust in an importantly new way." — Virginia Quarterly Review

Library Journal
Even 50 years after the event, this collection of interviews with survivors and bystanders still manages to give the reader a new sense of insight into the Holocaust. In candid language, we listen as Jan Karski, who met FDR in 1943, calls the Holocaust ``the second original sin''; as Yitzhak Arad, who survived in the Polish forests, talks about the structure of the Soviet Partisan Movement; as Marion Pritchard recalls for us the moment when she killed a Dutch Nazi; and as Whitney Harris, member of the U.S. prosecution team at Nuremberg, gives a behind-the-curtain view of the trials. And there are many others--Leo Eitinger, Leon Wells, Fackenheim, and Wiesel among them. The themes of death and rebirth run through many of the interviews, which Cargas conducts expertly from his own knowledge and involvement. He concludes with a discourse on the recent denial of the Holocaust. A very readable, current book.-- Gerda Haas, JCC Lib., Minneapolis
In-depth interviews probe the recollections of people subjected to the Nazi genocide of Jews during the 1930s and 1940s. Among those interviewed are Nobel Peace Prize laureate Elie Wiesel and Nazi hunter Simon Wiesenthal. No index or bibliography. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

    Voices for the holocaust is a great experence

    I read voices from the holocaust. This is a great book if you want to learn about the holocaust. In this book they talk about peoples experences with the holocaust. Like how did the holocaust affect there lives and how did it effect them. Most of the interviewed Holocaust survivor in this book are just plaine thankful for life because of what they went through from 1941-1945. I was really touched by some of the stories of the tweleve Holocaust survivors. Harry James Cargas did a great job writing this book. If you really want to know about real people's experences from the holocaust you have to read this book.
