Description The Midtown Scholar Bookstore will welcome author and journalist Andrea Pitzer to Harrisburg as she discusses her new book, "One Long Night: A Global History of Concentration Camps." A haunting history of the modern world’s greatest tragedy, "One Long Night" offers "a potent, powerful history of cruelty and dehumanization," and has been named one of Smithsonian Magazine’s Ten Best History books for 2017.
About the Book:
For over 100 years, at least one concentration camp has existed somewhere on Earth. First used as battlefield strategy, camps have evolved with each passing decade, in the scope of their effects and the savage practicality with which governments have employed them. Even in the 21st century, as we continue to reckon with the magnitude and horror of the Holocaust, history tells us we have broken our own solemn promise of "never again."
