Bloodlands: Europe Between Hitler and Stalin - Timothy Snyder

Staff Pick

In Bloodlands, Timothy Snyder argues that the Holocaust is just one part of a larger tragedy: that of the deaths of 14 million--not one a result of combat--in the vast area between Berlin and Moscow. Snyder not only provides an excellent account of World War II on the Eastern front but illuminates the humanity in the countless lives lost due to Hitler’s and Stalin’s cruel policies. Snyder asks each of us not just to condemn but to understand the motivations behind these14 million deaths--so that we make sure we neither forget nor repeat these horrors.
