English Language Broadcast - British author Jeremy Dronfield: "Now we have no excuse--we know where it can lead, and I think it is potentially leading in that direction" - 23/03/19

23 mar 2019

We welcome to the program British author Jeremy Dronfield, whose book "The Boy Who Followed His Father Into Auschwitz," published by Penguin Books, has just been published in Spanish translation by the Planeta Publishing House. Dronfield talks to Justin Coe about researching and writing the book, a true story about a Jewish family in Nazi-occupied Vienna whose members are detained and sent to concentration camps. Dronfield says that the understanding people have today of the Holocaust is generally of the late period, involving camps like Auschwitz and gas chambers and death marches. There is much less understanding, he points out, of the events that led up to the Holocaust. Dronfield says that by telling the story of the whole Kleinmann family he tries to make this important part of 20th century history accesible to readers. He also expresses concern regarding the current political situation in many parts of the world and says that the dehumanizing rhetoric we are hearing today is frighteningly reminiscent of Nazi propaganda aimed at dehumanizing Jews, Roma, homosexuals, the disabled.... Jeremy Dronfield concludes that since today we have the example of what happened under the Nazis, who less than a century ago exterminated some six million people, we now have no excuse for not acting to prevent a similarly horrendous outcome tomorrow.
