A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

Based on works by such figures as Albert Speer as well as lesser-known documents, a study of the moral practices within concentration camps uncovers the everyday virtues that persevered throughout the otherwise inhuman living conditions. Tour.

Critique:

It is an understatement to call the Nazi and Soviet death camps "outposts of hell on earth," as we know from the testimony of a powerful body of witnesses. Todorov looks inside these camps, and there he finds hope for all humankind, arguing that innumerable instances of heroism, self-sacrifice, and caring show that "moral reactions are spontaneous, omnipresent, and eradicable only with the greatest violence" and that "morality cannot disappear without a radical mutation of the human species." Even in a regime of terror and depersonalization, the ordinary virtues survived and sometimes even flourished, Todorov maintains. His wide-ranging study bears him out, and it makes for fascinating reading.
