Jürgen  Todenhöfer - Thou Shalt Not Kill


A plea for peace by a man who risks his life to look behind the scenes of war

For decades Jürgen Todenhöfer has been committed to the cause of peace. His books, all of them bestsellers, are passionate appeals for a world in which conflicts are not solved by the use of weapons. Jürgen Todenhöfer is not one of those who comment on the world from the safety zone of his home office; time and again he has been face to face with war and seen its consequences first hand. Here he describes his experiences during the Arab Spring in Libya, Egypt, Tunisia – and Syria, where there is a bitter civil war raging. Over and above this, he also reports on violent conflicts he witnessed while still very young.

In spite of all these events, Jürgen Todenhöfer has not abandoned his dream of peace. This is why he puts up with the often harsh criticism to which his views are subject; this is why he continues to raise his voice against those in all political camps who support war and never tires of explaining what he sees as reality and disclosing uncomfortable truths.

"It is seldom that a newly released book fits so well to the international news as You Should Not Kill by Jürgen Todenhöfer. His impassioned case against a cynical realpolitik where armchair strategists obscure the fact that war cannot be separated from death and destruction is so absorbingly written that one will only unwillingly stop reading."
