Journalist Andrea Pitzer reveals the harrowing and dehumanizing history of concentration camps across the span of six continents in One Long Night. In the unflinching narrative, Pitzer tells the reader, “Old camps reopen, new ones are born.” Drawing on testimony, research, and fieldwork, Pitzer renders a poignant look at the terrifying reality of human imprisonment.
