Ahmadinejad Denial of Holocaust VS. The Bird wachters of Auschwitz

 A Presentation by Hamid Sadr
Author of The Bird Collector of Auschwitz

Hamid Sadr masterfully succeeds once again in his new novel to link historical and current political
issues and to raise central questions about guilt and responsibility. Following
Hamid Sadr on this
tightrope between confronting the past and madness is a unique and rewarding literary experience.
