Journey Into Darkness

“Part travel diary, part historical investigation, part reflection on contemporary Australia, this sober and civilised book provides a remarkably lucid introduction to the study of the Holocaust.” Robert Manne

“Journey Into Darkness is not just about the Holocaust… but it also raises important questions for us as Australians.” Veronica Brady

“In this profound and compassionate book, Winton Higgins makes takes us, in true Buddhist style, into the pain and truth of our own Australian story.” Dorothy McRae-McMahon
