Description
"It remains one of the most haunting and emotionally devastating photographic images to emerge from World War II. A child, seemingly terrified, raises his hands as SS soldiers raise their weapons while carrying out the 'liquidation' of the Warsaw Ghetto. But who was the boy, who was the young girl next to him, and who was the Nazi soldier? [Dan] Porat is an associate professor at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, where he teaches classes on the representation of the Holocaust. His fascination, even obsession, with the image launched him on an odyssey that produced surprising and often disturbing results. Like many epic searches, what is discovered and encountered along the journey proved more revealing than the attainment of the primary goal. In particular, Porat uncovered considerable information on several Nazi war criminals associated with the photo, all of whom were executed after the war. He also succeeds in conveying the almost surrealistic aspects of war and genocide, utilizing both text and a variety of additional photographs."Booklist
