Publishers in Israel, Spain, Portugal, France, The Netherlands, Norway, Greece, Romania, and Russia are reviewing the book for possible publication.


Major Israeli newspapers:

* "A thorough and thought-provoking book"--Ha'aretz

* "The moral challenge posed by Eternal Treblinka turns it into a must for anyone who seeks to delve into the universal lesson of the Holocaust."--Maariv

The Freethinker (United Kingdom):

* "Eternal Treblinka disturbs us because (inevitably though tactfully) it holds up to us, its readers, a clear mirror to look at ourselves anew...It grips like a thriller."


"I urge you to read Eternal Treblinka and think deeply about its important message." --Dr. Jane Goodall

"Compelling, controversial, iconoclastic...strongly recommended ...a unique contribution." --Midwest Book Review

"There are good books...entertaining, useful, informative; great books...whose message reveals a fundamental truth previously unknown or overlooked; and important books... that can save lives and ameliorate suffering: Eternal Treblinka is all three." --Satya Magazine, New York City

"Important and timely...written with great sensitivity and compassion...I hope that Eternal Treblinka will be widely read." --Martyrdom and Resistance (Holocaust publication)

"Every so often a book is written that has the potential to make an incredible difference. Eternal Treblinka is one such book." --N. Glenn Perrett

"Hard to read--but a must read!--how mistreatment of animals leads to the dehumanization and extermination of people as 'mere animals.' Well-written and respectful of both Judaism and the Holocaust."
--Rabbi Yonassan Gershom

"It is seldom that such a comprehensive work of scholarship springs from a heart of compassion in the service of a noble and necessary idea. All the ingredients of your thesis--that the oppression of animals serves as the model for all other forms of oppression--have been available to thinking people for generations, but it remained for you to pull them together." --Helen Weaver, author of The Daisy Sutra

"Eternal Treblinka should be on every list of essential reading for an informed citizenry...for the compelling comprehensiveness of the life-and-death story it tells."
--National Jewish Post & Opinion
"...promises to be one of the most influential books of the 21st century." --Dr. Karen Davis, United Poultry Concerns

"Powerful, moving, gut-wrenching, brilliant--destined to be a classic" --Aviva Cantor, journalist and author

"This book is going to change the world." --Albert Kaplan, Albert Kaplan & Co., Johns Island, SC
