We are thankful and feel blessed to have read The Holocaust and The Henmaid’s Tale.

Karen Davis is rare even among those who work in animal protection. Her combination of honesty, courage, and intelligence results in an unflinching truthfulness about any subject she tackles. We all need to listen, learn, and allow ourselves to admit the truth about our world and ourselves. As long as we give in to our cowardice in order to “get along” and to feel comfortable in a world of lies and deception, things can only go from bad to worse. And in the end, no one will be spared. In plain language, it’s time to tell it as it is. That is the only way things can improve for everyone: humans and animals.

The Holocaust & The Henmaid’s Tale is such an important work that it is hard to zero in on only one area to quote. Just one example of the truthfulness that we feel so many people avoid is found in the following passage: (When we read it we thought, “Yes! So true! Many people want to believe that everyone really cares about the plight of animals, and that all they need is an awakening. Surely, they feel guilty, don’t they? We don’t think that’s the case, at least most of the time.)

“The fact that animals are suffering and dying for appetites that could be satisfied in many other ways makes some, perhaps many, people uncomfortable, though not necessarily because of guilt. People get annoyed that you’re bothering them…”

We can go on and on about this gem of a book, but you must read The Holocaust & The Henmaid’s Tale for yourself. So, do yourself a favor. Get The Holocaust & The Henmaid’s Tale by Karen Davis. (That’s telling it the way it is, isn’t it?)

About the Author:

Reviewers’ afterthought:

One of the definitions for the word “holocaust” found in Webster’s New Universal Unabridged Dictionary is “complete destruction of people or animals by fire.” In any dictionary, “holo” is derived from a word meaning “whole” and “caust” from a word meaning “burnt.”
