The Holocaust – Now at a Discount

[singlepic id=265 w=320 h=240 float=right]Today, within the pages of my daily newspaper I have found a flier titled ‘We must know, we must remember‘, sporting a Jewish yellow badge. As Holocaust Remembrance Day is next week I was interested in seeing what was inside the flier, as invoking such a powerful image, a Star of David patch with the German word ‘Jude‘ on it is a potent emotional symbol in Israel to this day. Opening the flier I found out that this is actually an advertisement and for 99NIS I can get my hands on two Holocaust-related books, thanks to a collaboration between the subscription department of Yedioth Ahronot and Steimatzky, Israel’s leading bookstore chain.

What The Hell Are You Reading?

Ever noticed that every book you read has its name printed on every second page? What’s the deal with that? What kind of boring books do people buy that they just pause in the middle of reading and ask themselves ‘What the hell am I reading?’ – ‘Oh, I see, in that case – on with the boring Adventures of Huckleberry Finn’ Why does every book you read has its title printed on top of every second page?

Shahar currently reads the book ‘IBM and the Holocaust: The Strategic Alliance Between Nazi Germany and America’s Most Powerful Corporation‘. If you want him to read something else, you can purchase it for him on his Amazon.com Wish List.
