A story of unbelievable heroism and survival, 'Outrage 2000' was inspired by the libel suit against historian Deborah Lipstadt in January 2000. This trial, covered worldwide for its shocking accusation, forced Lipstadt to prove, once and for all, that Hitler’s ovens and war machine did, in fact, consume millions of Jews during World War II.
Levie Kanes was an infant during the Holocaust and spent World War II in the care of a gentile foster family in Veghel, Holland. Outrage 2000 is Kanes’s biography, as well as a documentation of the collaboration of Dutch state institutions, especially the role of the Dutch police, in carrying out Hitler’s plan. But we also learn of the extraordinary and selfless efforts of Father Theo Verhoeven and his network of assistants, who made sure that Kanes and hundreds of other Jewish children remained safe throughout the war.
It is also the tragic tale of the fate of Kanes's father, Soli, and the torturous experiences of his mother, Caroline, who survived the experiments of the evil Dr. Josef Mengele in Auschwitz.
'Outrage 2000' is Levie Kanes’s contribution to preserving the truth and protecting it from manipulators. It is a tale that must be told.
Critic Reviews: Abstract: Deborah Lipstadt was sued in 1994 for libel after calling David Irving a Holocaust denier and right wing extremist in her book Denying the Holocaust. Outrage 2000 is the inspiration that emerged from this case. But the case backfired and thanks to Irving, Lipstadt was able to prove just how real Hitler and his murderous ways were. When Kanes learned about the trial, he was so outraged that he decided he 'would write this book so that everyone would know our story.' His story is recorded here – the miraculous one of how he was rescued by members of the Dutch resistance, as well as the tragic one of his how his parents perished in Hitler's regime. Basically Kanes was so infuriated by all the lies that had been perpetrated that he wrote this book to counteract them. This is not just an examination of the past, but a lesson for the future. Objective:To educate the whole world on the story of the Holocaust and his murdered family from Holland. He wanted 'the world to know about the work done by many heroic Dutch people, Catholics and Protestants, who saved so many Jews from death.' Comments:This educational, informative book is written from an historical perspective and is helpful for understanding the Lipstadt-Irving trial. Use:Holocaust studies.
