A devastating history of genocide -- in one Ukrainian town

March 28, 2018 Forward

This is a review of the new book Anatomy of a Genocide: The Life and Death of a Town Called Buczacz by Omer Bartov, the John P. Birkelund Distinguished Professor of European History. "What Anatomy of a Genocide provides instead is perhaps more valuable: A searing portrait of how the Holocaust worked on the ground for ordinary men and women — onetime neighbors and friends whose disparate fates were determined by ethnicity and chance."
