Black Earth: The Holocaust as History and Warning . The Black Earth by Timothy Snyder is a history of the Holocaust and also serves as a warning. In lite of the recent election and the election of xenophobic leaders in other countries I feel we are closer than ever to repeat such a tragic event. In his book Timothy Snyder show how ordinary citizens turn a blind eye to what is going on. He talks of the brave few who try and help at great personal risk. He also talks of how our twenty-first century is beginning to resemble the twelfth. I believe it would behove our current house and senate to take heed and read this book.
