  • The Holocaust and Compensated Compliance in Italyby Alexis Herr

    Palgrave Macmillan US 2017; US$ 81.12

    This study of the Fossoli di Carpi camp, from its origins to its postwar functions, exposes not only the pattern of silence that facilitated mass murder, but also the religious, national, and international political sources of that silence. Despite popular belief, Italy's wartime past is far from a single-note narration of benevolence. more...
