Daniel Jonah Goldhagen: "Schlimmer als Krieg. Wie Völkermord entsteht
und wie er zu verhindern ist" (Worse than war. How genocide arises and
how it can be prevented)
Book Presentation with the Author
Time and again, outbreaks of violence stun the world. The American political scientist Daniel Goldhagen, who caused an uproar primarily with his bestseller "Hitler's Willing Executioners," explores the question of how such conflicts arise and what makes people kill their neighbors. How does the murder begin? And how does it cease again? Why do we generally stand on the sidelines while genocide is occurring and what can we do about it?
