  5. Concentration camps didn't start a " or end a " with Nazi Germany; 'One Long Night' is their historyRead the original story

    Tuesday Sep 19 | Dallas Morning News

    Andrea Pitzer was working on her first book, a biography of Vladimir Nabokov, when she encountered a reference to one of his characters being held in a prison camp in Russia during World War I. It was not something she'd seen previous scholars address, and when she went looking for a general history of such camps, she couldn't find one - so she wrote One Long Night: A Global History of Concentration Camps . The Nazi death camps are a crucial part of that history, of course, but Pitzer reveals how the basic principles of the extrajudicial mass internment of civilians had been laid out nearly a half-century earlier and how, for most of the last century, there has not been a day without at least one concentration camp somewhere on the planet.
