Losing trust in the world : Holocaust scholars confront torture / edited and introduced by Leonard Grob and John K. Roth

Publication | Library Call Number: HV8593 .L67 2017
Book cover

The contributors to this volume use their expertise in Holocaust studies to reflect on ethical, religious, and legal aspects of torture then and now. Their inquiry grapples with the euphemistic language often used to disguise torture and with the question of whether torture ever constitutes a "necessary evil." Differences of opinion reverberate, raising deeper questions: Can trust be restored? What steps can we as individuals and as a society take to move closer to a world in which torture is unthinkable?
