Virtual Book Launch: The Ravine: A Family, A Photograph, A Holocaust Massacre Revealed

Upcoming 25 May 2021
The terrible mass shootings in Poland and the Ukraine are often neglected in studies of the Holocaust, because the perpetrators were meticulously careful to avoid leaving any evidence of their actions. Wendy Lower stumbled across one such piece of evidence – a photograph documenting the shooting of a mother and her children and the men who killed them – and from it has crafted The Ravine: A Family, A Photograph, A Holocaust Massacre Revealed, a forensically brilliant and moving study that brings the larger horror of the genocide into focus.
