Black Earth: The Holocaust as History and Warning
(Tim Duggan Books, 2015)

Historian Timothy Snyder (Yale University) in conversation with Robert B. Silvers, editor of the New York Review of Books

Snyder gives a new explanation of the great atrocity of the 20th century and reveals the risks that we face in the 21st. Drawing on new archival sources from Eastern Europe, Snyder cautions why we must see this history as a warning for the future.
