Speak the Unspeakable - The testimonies of those who perished in, those who survived and those who perpetrated the Holocaust

NI6251
£10.99

Details

The 24 pieces of testimony – not only of victims and survivors, but also of the perpetrators – are powerful reminders of what happens when a society falls victim to its baser instincts. It is hoped that these readings and scripts will inspire a new generation to act differently.

Geraldine Auerbach MBE and Ben Helfgott MBE, Producers of “Speak the Unspeakable…”

Reviews

"As mention in the above review I found that this brought me back to a visit I made a few years ago to Auschwitz and Birkenau. It left me in a very sombre mood thinking "How could man be so utterly brutal to millions of people"? whom Hitler called "Undermenschen". But this genocide only makes one remember that this activity still goes on in various parts of the world. This CD is a just reminder of the Holocaust and should be heard by a much wider public including the disbelievers! Did I like it? Well NO, I did not, but it has to be listened to even if one is reduced to tears."Philip Ashton
