In 1996 Martin Gilbert was asked to lead students on a tour of the places in Europe that were the stage of one of history''s greatest human tragedies. The two-week journey that resulted, with England''s leading Holocaust and World War II scholar as its guide, culminated in this powerful travel narrative.

From the Publisher:
Martin Gilbert, one of the world's leading scholars of the Holocaust, was asked by a group of his graduate students to lead them on a pilgrimage to the stage of one of history's greatest human tragedies. Their journey resulted in this powerful travel narrative interweaving present-day experiences with historical accounts.Documents a 1996 journey that Gilbert (Holocaust studies, U. College, London) took 13 of his graduate students on to the places in Europe that were the settings for the Holocaust. He juxtaposes the experiences and reactions of his students with the stories of the victims and survivors from the ghettos and camps, on the run from Nazi terror, or in revolt against it. Black-and-white photographs and detailed maps support the narrative. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
Annotation:
A historian spends two weeks touring Holocaust sites, taking a group of students to Berlin, Prague, Zilina, Cracow, Auschwitz, Zamosc, Lublin, Warsaw, Piotrkow, and Konin. The irony that Auschwitz is now a popular and lucrative tourist site is not lost on him.

Praise

Kirkus Reviews
"Gilbert...guides one of his classes on an extraordinary field trip..., bringing in local historians with their archival letters and diaries. To these moving testaments Gilbert here adds the voices of his fellow travelers, both Jews and non-Jews, who draw closer as the trip progresses and they relive the terrible history....The very best book for any Jew, or any human being, planning the same soul-searching trip." 09/15/1997
