Dr. March's Reading List
Here it is, as requested. To review, "Dr. March," as I call him here, isa professor of human rights and history who takes a group of students on a tour of the Nazi death camps in Poland over every Christmas break. He is urging me to take the trip in 2006 and has provided me with the reading list to prepare. (Any notes with the titles are his. And they are not in alpha order, but in the order I think he thinks they should be read.)
