Sophie I'm taking a human rights in Latin America class right, so that's where my books are coming from. One thing I want to highlight with this list is that the Jewish Holocaust of WWII is not the only instance of mass human rights abuses, and it's certainly not the most recent. Atrocities have happened all over the world and even in recent times. Despite cries of "never forget" or "never again," people are still quite capable of horrible acts.


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads I see some non-fiction (The Ideological Origins of the American Revolution, for example) has crept on; is there anything you want me to remove, Lindsay?

Hmm. I read the list description ("testimonials, diaries ... and other types of literature") as not specifically excluding nonfiction. Will be happy to remove any nonfiction entries I added, but I understand the list's purpose to comprise ALL types of literature dealing with human rights (and the abuse of same).

Lindsay?


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads I couldn't quite tell from the description what exactly was kosher!

Sophie Wow, this list has grown!

My original intent was to be broad, so I'd say leave them on. I like the variety.

Thanks for the clarification! (Being someone who actually cares whether list contributions meet the parameters set by the list creators to begin, I'd have been sorry to have unintentionally overstepped the intended bounds myself ... And there really ARE so many great nonfiction books that deal with human rights -- both their protection and their abuse -- everywhere in the world!)

Okey dokey!

Ellen Hi goodreaders!
