Eternal Treblinka is a wonderful
book about terrible subjects, a work that
resonates and extends the best of liberal
humanism and broad left activism to the exploitation,
oppression and extermination of non-human

Thank you, thank you for your book.
I wonder if true evolution will ever come--in
our lifetime. The strength of your book will
certainly bring more light to the darker places
of animal oppression.
This extremely well-written and researched
book is eminently readable, and Patterson's
passion for the subject matter shines through
on each page.
I will use your book as a healing
bible and continue to mention it as a reference
in every letter I write and every conversation

the mistreatment of humans
It remains the finest contribution

Eternal Treblinka sounds like nothing
less than a monumental contribution to humankind.
--Adrien Bischoff-Dyson (UK)
Reading Eternal Treblinka is a shattering experience... Patterson writes so well that it is difficult to put this book down.
--Grady Harp (Altadena, CA)
The most important book on the Holocaust ever written.
--Jon Wynne-Tyson, author of Extended Circle
Every few years a book comes out that completely shocks the world. A book that forces people to change their ways, forces them to question what they have believed their whole lives, forces them to ACT, to DO SOMETHING. This is one such book.
--David Vidaurre (San Jose, CA)
A stunning book
--John Williamson (UK)
The rest of the world is learning what I knew immediately-- your book is awesome and life changing.
No one who reads this book will fail to be moved.
--Anglican Society for the Welfare of Animals
Eternal Treblinka should be on every list of essential reading for an informed citizenry...for the compelling comprehensiveness of the life-and-death story it tells.
--National Jewish Post & Opinion
It's wonderful how ET is reaching so many people and it's only the beginning. Your brave book will remain and be a strong testimony when we're all long gone.
--Patty Mark, Australia
There is no doubt in my mind that you have written a great book. It is seldom that such a comprehensive work of scholarship springs from a heart of compassion in the service of a noble and necessary idea. All the ingredients of your thesis--that the oppression of animals serves as the model for all other forms of oppression--have been available to thinking people for generations, but it remained for you to pull them together into a case for animal rights that we as a species cannot afford to ignore.
--Helen Weaver, author of The Daisy Sutra
Every so often a book is written that has the potential to make an incredible difference. Eternal Treblinka is one such book.
--N. Glenn Perrett
There are good books...entertaining, useful, informative; great books...whose message reveals a fundamental truth previously unknown or overlooked; and important books... that can save lives and ameliorate suffering: Eternal Treblinka is all three.
--Norm Phelps, Satya Magazine (NYC)
--Ellen Roberts, Where Books Begin
It is a book that will cause controversy, even outrage. But it will shake the complacency of all who are involved with food production and food consumption. It is an essential weapon in our struggle for a non-violent world.
--David Graham, Vegan Organic Network (UK)
Interesting and compelling book...highly revelatory, if disturbing, read
--Mountain Xpress, Ashville NC
It is a great book indeed and an eye opener for many people.
--Eleonora Moser, SOS Saint Bernard Dogs, Geneva
Compelling, controversial, iconoclastic...Eternal Treblinka is strongly recommended.
--Midwest Book Review
Patterson's book sheds light on the violence perpetuated every day against animals and humans alike so that we might one day put an end to it.
Whether the comparison between the extermination of the Jews and our daily slaughter of millions of 'food' animals evokes agreement or outrage, you will want to read this meticulously researched and compelling treatment of a painful and controversial subject.
--Jewish Journal of Greater Los Angeles
...written with great sensitivity and compassion...important and timely...I hope that Eternal Treblinka will be widely read.
--Martyrdom and Resistance (Holocaust publication)
I admire your dedication to the protection of all life and hope that your book will stir others to the same action. I will try to alert others here to this work and invite them to join me in reading it. God bless you.
--Rt. Rev. Steven Charleston, EDS, Cambridge MA
Thank God for Charles Patterson. This is as important as any book that's ever been written.
--Meria Heller, internet radio talk show host, Phoenix
Eternal Treblinka is an eye-opening, thought-provoking book that I highly recommend as way of gaining additional insight into the psychology of the Holocaust.
--Michael Fein, The Gantseh Megillah, Montreal, Canada
Charles Patterson's book will go a long way towards righting the terrible wrongs that human beings, throughout history, have perpetrated on non-human animals. I urge you to read it and think deeply about its important message.
--Dr. Jane Goodall
Today I just finished reading one of the all-time BEST books, Eternal Treblinka, and must thank you for your immense contribution to humanity. It is my hope that your masterpiece will be translated into many languages and that it will receive the distribution it so richly warrants. For years I have been saying than anyone who eats animals is no better than a Nazi. It is great for me to have your Nobel-worthy work as validation.
--Karen Marcus, J.D.
Your book is powerful, moving, gut-wrenching, brilliant--destined to be a classic, I'm sure of it. I am grateful to be in it. I wish you every success in getting this stunning book the recognition and readers it so richly deserves. Mazel Tov on your achievement!
This is the most important book on human treatment of animals since Animal Liberation....Patterson does not offer any pat answers, but his book has clearly posed the problem, and that is what makes this a great book.
--Keith Akers (review in VegNews)
Amazing book, deeply impressive, awesome
--Bruce Friedrich, PETA
Surprising for its readability as well as its broad appeal. Somehow Patterson has managed to turn this educational work of non-fiction into something of a page-turner.
--Josh Frank, Ph.D., FIREPAW
It is such an important book and I just hope that it will open the minds and reach the conscience of many readers. Every evening I am looking forward to reading another chapter.
Great and very courageous book
--Marco Lorenzi, Milan, Italy
Exciting, passionate, and daring
--Tom Salsberg, L'Chaim Vegetarian Group of Toronto
I consider this a very important achievement for animals and humans alike. Most probably your work will only be truly appreciated in years to come, but this is the fate of nearly all original and independent authors.
--Christa Blanke, Germany
Exceptionally well done. I'll recommend it to many others. A cold shower for relativists cozy in their SUV's, I hope many read it and I hope many Jews, like myself, make room for the lessons within. I don't see it as a diminution of the Holocaust. Quite the opposite.
You were relentless in your pursuit of the truth about man's treatment of animals. It takes a lot of integrity to write a book like this, to be so relentless. It made me cry to read it and I can guess what it cost you to write it.
Really excellent book...it is an impassioned plea for justice for all creatures. It speaks to me.
I regard Eternal Treblinka as one of the best and most important animal rights books ever published.
I eagerly await the publication of Charles Patterson's book. It will make an invaluable contribution to the quest for a more just and compassionate world.
--Dr. Elliot Katz, In Defense of Animals
I'm happy to support your book, and I would like to buy copies of it in bulk when you are done so that the group I am involved with can sell it
--Daniel Chard, New Haven CT
Charles Patterson's book has the potential of being a very important and influential book. I strongly believe that a book putting the issue of violence against human and non-human animals in historical perspective will help many people better understand the issue, and that Charles Patterson's experience and background make him an ideal person to write such a book.
--Richard Schwartz, Judaism & Vegetarianism
I am so glad you are writing the book. It is so powerful. I write books calculated to allow people to see how easy and enjoyable it is to help animals, but they are little books. Your book is big. I hope to god it stirs everything up. Your book takes me to the edge. I think it is important and wonderful. You can tell publishers we will carry it.
--Ingrid Newkirk, President, PETA
It sounds like you've got a terrific project underway.
