[eMediaWire] January 10, 2005--Charles Patterson's groundbreaking book--Eternal Treblinka: Our Treatment of Animals and the Holocaust (New York: Lantern Books, 2002; ISBN 1-930051-99-9)--will be at the Jerusalem Book Fair October 8-13.
The book's title comes from the Yiddish writer and Nobel Laureate, Isaac Bashevis Singer, to whom the book is dedicated. He was the first major modern author to describe the exploitation and slaughter of animals in terms of the Holocaust. "In relation to them, all people are Nazis," he wrote, "for animals it is an eternal Treblinka." (Treblinka was the Nazi death camp north of Warsaw.)
