Father Patrick Desbois brings to life the silence behind so many witnesses to the Holocaust through the search for the details of how the murders were accomplished in the eastern Europe countries where people were rounded up to be shot. Each of the work details seem to be identified and explained in the words of witnesses, whether they were recently interviewed or deposed in records from the time and only now examined. The author masterfully leads the listener/reader on the journey to examine how, when, where, and importantly the who was involved in the smaller yet overall crime. Excellent weaving of the rural setting in France, which some people might relate to other countries, with the rural setting of the eastern European countries of WWII and now. This is a fascinating book that was just released in audio format and I really could not put it aside for more than a few minutes without being drawn back to it. Haunting. Highly recommending this book since it has applications in understanding current events. Do not wait to read this book!

Remarkably researched and detailed, this book allows one to see the horror almost as if we were standing with either the victims or the murderers. There is a lesson to our time and place that this horror has really never ceased. It is still periodically appearing in our world. If we listen to this account we realize that we have a part to play in the continued violence and genocide. Read or listen and then pass it on to a friend.
