“Superb . . . Throws new light on the central trauma of Israeli society, and the uses and abuses of this trauma for political manipulation. I, for one, learned from this book that, in order to survive, societies must learn not only to remember but also to forget.” ―Amos Elon, author of Founders and Sons
“This book is indispensable reading for anyone interested in Israel's self-image and identity . . . Any further discussion of the Holocaust must confront Tom Segev's work.” ―George L. Mosse, author of Nazi Culture
“Frank and eye-opening . . . A valuable addition.” ―Lawrence L. Langer, The New York Times Book Review
“Richly documented and written with great passion.” ―Elie Wiesel, Los Angeles Times Book Review

dieses werk ist ein standard- und referenzwerk und bringt einem breiten publikum bislang unbekannte fakten und zusammenhänge ans licht und stellt sie mit bekannten in den richtigen kontext.
Quite a bit on collaboration of various kinds while trying to remain dispassionate about it. An account of the Kastner affair that seemed revisionist at times but may be only cautious and as balanced as one can ask for.
Barely mentions the Palestinians, obviously, but none the worse for that.
and those who do study the subject will know it had to pass through the ovens of hell to get published and not be labeled self hating jew or similar -- how this was done was very clever and allowed us all to grasp something which if written in another manner would remain beyond our understanding-- such is the cauldron of a witches brew of a country written about- where the dead of thousands of years old underfoot can get you killed and the living are no better learned for their holocaust and now measure and ration the calories and water of their inmates in their concentration camps today .
the cleverness of this book can be seen on page 161 where he states " the war of independence broke out and tens of thousands of homes were suddenly available - what Shaul Avigur called THE ARAB MIRACLE and the country was gripped with a frenzy to take these homes and businesses from the many now deserted towns and villages and cities which arabs had suddenly fled from."
no explanation is offered to explain this event and now you know how this book is fireproofed to get it published-- if Tom Segev had stated that heavily pregnant arab woman were publicly aborted with a bayonet in front of their rural peaceloving people which was the terror required to remove them from their homes -- you would never read this book - it would not be available - but for those who study this subject we know the ocean wide vacant space left by Tom has a reason and now you will build that bookshelf .
you have to deduct one star for the palestinens .denis buggy
