How Do You Kill 11 Million People? Why The Truth Matters More Than You Think by Andy Andrews

How Do You Kill 11 Million People?: Why the Truth Matters More Than You Think

 

How Do You Kill 11 Million People? is a very interesting quick little read. You can literally read the entire book in about 15 minutes. It’s a very succinct and accurate portrayal of some important pieces world history.  The author addresses a question many have had when studying the rise of Hitler and the Holocaust. How do you get millions of people to go along with their own genocide?  How do a small number of Germans, yes with guns, but a small number of Germans get millions of people to board trains taking them to their own brutal abuse and murder?  The answer…. they lie.  This is an interesting quick look at a very deep topic.

For such lies to work you have to have a large group willing to be in denial and or ignorant, to accept such lies. Hitler and his Nazi regime stated if the lies are big enough and repeated enough people will believe them. They understood the power of propaganda and how important it is to take over the media and education to propagate such lies.

You can see the common theme here from my last post.  For those of you who never read, this is such a short and quick read I recommend it.  Also a great read for children.   Certainly not a “must read” book for those used to consuming many books but if it peaks your interest it’s certainly worth your time. HIT THE BOOKS, THEY DON’T HIT BACK!
