Anatomy of a Genocide: The Life and Death of a Town Called Buczacz Pdf Book Description:
“A significant contribution to the history of ethnic strife and extreme violence” (The Wall Street Journal) and a cautionary analysis of how genocide can take root from the neighborhood degree –turning neighbors, friends, and relatives out of a different –as seen through the oriental European border town of Buczacz throughout World War II. For four hundred years, the Eastern European border town of Buczacz–currently part of Ukraine–was home to a highly diverse citizenry. Then came World War II, and three years following the entire Jewish population had been murdered by German and Ukrainian governments, while Ukrainian nationalists eradicated indigenous citizens. In reality, but this genocide didn’t happen so quickly. The perpetrators aren’t merely sociopathic soldiers. They are neighbors and friends and nearest and dearest. They are also middle-aged men who come from anywhere, frequently with their wives and children and parents, and settle into a life of bourgeois comfort peppered with spells of mass murder.
For two years Bartov, whose mother was improved in Buczacz, traveled extensively throughout the region, scouring archives and amassing tens of thousands of documents rarely seen until now. Anatomy of a Genocide profoundly alters our understanding of the social dynamics of mass murdering and also the gist of the Holocaust as a whole. Bartov’s book isn’t just an attempt to understand what happened before. It’s a warning of how it might happen again, within our cities and towns –much easier than we might think.
