The Little Dictator


    November 14, 2000, Israeli New Historian Tom Segev’s book “The Seventh Million” is released in English. Detailing the effect the Holocaust had on the nascent state of Israel, in many ways this effect still echoes through the generations of survivor families. In The Little Dictator, at the 90th birthday party of his wife’s Holocaust survivor grandmother, a dull history professor finds himself in a surreal situation that forces him to face up to himself and his family.
