About this product
- DescriptionThe complicity of the Hungarian Christian church in the mass extermination of Hungarian Jews by the Nazis is a largely forgotten episode in the history of the Holocaust. Using previously unkwn correspondence and other primary source materials, Moshe Y. Herczl recreates the church's actions and its disposition toward Hungarian Jewry. Herczl provides a scathing indictment of the church's lack of compassion toward--and even active persecution of--Hungary's Jews during World War II.
- Author BiographyMoshe Y. Herczl was born in Hungary in 1924. He studied in Yeshiva until the German invasion in 1944, when he was imprisoned in a Nazi labor camp. After his release, Herczl joined the partisans and in 1948 emigrated to Palestine, where he fought for Israel's independence. Author of several books, a former Deputy Director of the Education Department of Netanya Municipality in Israel and a former Director of the Cape Board of Jewish Education in Cape Town, Moshe Herczl died in Jerusalem in 1990.
