  • On October 10, 1941, the entire Jewish population of the Belarusian village of Krucha was rounded up and shot While Nazi death squads routinely carried out mass executions on the Eastern Front, this particular atrocity was not the work of the SS but was committed by a regular German army unit acting on its own initiative Marching into Darkness is a bone chilling exposeOn October 10, 1941, the entire Jewish population of the Belarusian village of Krucha was rounded up and shot While Nazi death squads routinely carried out mass executions on the Eastern Front, this particular atrocity was not the work of the SS but was committed by a regular German army unit acting on its own initiative Marching into Darkness is a bone chilling expose of the ordinary footsoldiers who participated in the Final Solution on a daily basis.Although scholars have exploded the myth that the Wehrmacht played no significant part in the Holocaust, a concrete picture of its involvement at the local level has been lacking Among the crimes Waitman Wade Beorn unearths are forced labor, sexual violence, and graverobbing, though a few soldiers refused to participate and even helped Jews By meticulously reconstructing the German army s activities in Belarus in 1941, Marching into Darkness reveals in stark detail how the army willingly fulfilled its role as an agent of murder on a massive scale Early efforts at improvised extermination progressively became much methodical, with some army units going so far as to organize Jew hunts Beorn also demonstrates how the Wehrmacht used the pretense of anti partisan warfare as a subterfuge by reporting murdered Jews as partisans.Through archival research into military and legal records, survivor testimonies, and eyewitness interviews, Beorn paints a searing portrait of a professional army s descent into ever intimate participation in genocide.

    1. I must begin with an unusual sort of disclosure: I have at least some stake in the success of this book, as it was my first professional indexing job (I don’t get royalties; however the better it does, the better I look to potential clients). In addition to being the indexer, I’m friends with the writer. I’ve reviewed my friends’ books on before, but never, as it were, when I had “skin in the game” to any degree. Therefore, although my enthusiasm for this book is genuine, readers wi [...]


    2. A detailed account of the Wehrmacht's complicity in the Holocaust in Belarus. Not for the casual WWII reader because this is not a novel-like narrative of this difficult time, and some portions can be especially disturbing. Instead, it is a heavily researched and almost academic study; its intent is to disprove the traditional belief that the Wehrmacht's role in the Holocaust was ancillary. The author demonstrates that the German army, with few exceptions, was an active and often eager participa [...]
