Holocaust Told in One Word 6 Million Times from The NY Times

Reblogged from Literary Creature:

 A new book "Every SIngle One Was Someone" consists of one word "Jew" repeated.

 

"The book, more art than literature, consists of the single word “Jew,” in tiny type, printed six million times to signify the number of Jews killed during the Holocaust. It is meant as a kind of coffee-table monument of memory, a conversation starter and thought provoker."

*****

It took 1250 pages to give each victim his or her own four-character space. The holocaust deniers should be ashamed of themselves.
