Holocaust City: The Making of a Jewish Ghetto by Tim Cole
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 3.1 MB
Overview: Drawing from the ideas of critical geography and based on extensive archival research, Cole brilliantly reconstructs the formation of the Jewish ghetto during the Holocaust, focusing primarily on the ghetto in Budapest, Hungary–one of the largest created during the war, but rarely examined. Cole maps the city illustrating how spaces–cafes, theaters, bars, bathhouses–became divided in two. Throughout the book, Cole discusses how the creation of this Jewish ghetto, just like the others being built across occupied Europe, tells us a great deal about the nature of Nazism, what life was like under Nazi-occupation, and the role the ghetto actually played in the Final Solution.
