#2966: Book on the 1937 massacre of Haitian in Dominican Republic
>From Bob Corbett
I was amazed when today's mail brought me a book I had never heard of
before on such an important historical topic.
The book is: HOLOCAUST IN THE CARIBBEAN: THE SLAUGHTER OF 25,000
HAITIAN BY TRUJILLO IN ONE WEEK. By Miguel Aquino. With an introduction
buy Howard Zinn. Waterbury, CT: Emancipation Press, 1997.
Mine is a used copy, and I only have the one copy, but the inside cover
offers phone orders at:
I have no idea if the book is still in print, but I am amazed that
I'd never heard of it before.
In looking through this 184 paged book it seems to be more of a
history of Trujillo with three of the chapters focusing more or
less on the 1937 massacre. Thus the sub-title is a bit misleading.
Nonetheless, I am most happy to have added this analysis to my own
library and look forward to checking it out in more detail when time
