Crimes Against Humanity
Author: David Soakell
Product code: BT99
A compilation of songs and poems originally set to music, which try to reflect something of the horror of The Holocaust and beyond. A royalty from the sale of this publication will aid survivors as through CFI Jerusalemís "Forsake Them Not" Project.This gathering of written works was first written to coincide with the "Anne Frank In The World Exhibition", which was brought to the UK's North East some time ago.
The author writes in the introduction:
"I have tried to probe the minds of victims who experienced this and to look through their eyes at a time of history which should never be forgotten - yet which continues even today.
I realise that no matter how hard I try, I will never be able to bring to life the real horrors that those people experienced physically, mentally and spiritually, but hope this work is at least thought-provoking.
My heart's desire is that, from any aspect of this work, even one person's conscience might be awakened to the evils that continue to face mankind today, and that that reality would show itself in a more compassionate and tolerant society, bringing peace and God's love into our world of much need."
