The starting point of Jan Gross's A Golden Harvest is a haunting photograph that depicts a group of "diggers" atop a mountain of ashes at Treblinka, where some 800,000 Jews were gassed and cremated. The diggers are hoping to find gold and precious stones that Nazi executioners may have overlooked. Beginning with one photograph, this moving book evokes the depth and range, as well as the intimacy, of the final solution.

David Cesarani, Literary Review Rarely can a book of such short length have touched on such large questions about history, memory, and human behaviour in dark times.

Times Literary Supplement While British academics anxiously ruminate on how to demonstrate their `impact' on the wider world to earn government funding, Jan Gross provides a powerful example of a scholar who has shaped a nation's collective self-understanding.
