Description
Peter Gourevitch explores the dynamics of "lessons to be learned" from the Holocaust. Drawing on the experience of his grandmother who fled and survived in the United States, and his great-uncle who stayed in France and died in Auschwitz, he discusses information that made some perceive the danger and others to ignore it. A professor of political science at UC San Diego, Gourevitch emphasizes the role political activism played in alerting some individuals to the impending threat from the destruction of democracy.
