Black Earth: The Holocaust as Environmental History

Sponsored by: Yale School of Forestry and Environmental History

By overlooking the lessons of the Holocaust, Timothy Snyder argues, we have misunderstood modernity and endangered the future. The early twenty-first century is coming to resemble the early twentieth, as growing preoccupations with food and water accompany ideological challenges to global order. Our world is closer to Hitler’s than we like to admit, and saving it requires us to see the Holocaust as it was — and ourselves as we are.
