Summary

'Excellent ... an astounding amount of material.'
Times Educational Supplement 
 
Popular culture often portrays the Holocaust as a
horrific drama played out between Nazi executioners and ghetto Jewish victims -
in short, a single aberration of history. 
 
Introducing
the Holocaust is a powerful graphic guide that dissolves this
stereotype, explaining the causes and its relevance today. It places the
Holocaust where it belongs - at the centre of modern European and world
history. 
 
Haim Bresheeth and Stuart Hood - along with Litza
Jansz's outstanding illustrations - bring a unique and unforgettable perspective
to how we think about this most dark of shadows on human history.

    In his illustrious career as a cartoonist for the New Yorker and other publications, Joseph Farris has created dozens of hilarious cartoons about “the best game in the world at which to be bad.”A.A. Milne had it right, and Farris’s cartoons get to the heart of the game’s wonderful contradiction: over the course of eighteen holes, golf has the capacity to bring great joy and drive you crazy.Farris treats us to the sight of a blissfully happily newlywed with “Just Married” emblazoned on the back of his golf cart; of an archaeologist who discovers a hieroglyph featuring an annoyed-looking pharaoh breaking a golf club over his knee; and a TV-watching husband who rebuffs his naked wife’s amorous advances in no uncertain terms: “Not now, I’m watching Tiger Woods.”It’s been said that real golfers don’t cry.  That may or may not be true.   Joseph Farris’s cartoons are sure to make any golfer laugh.
