    The journey that takes Mark Jacobson around the world began when a friend bought a lamp at a rummage sale and was told that it was made from the skins of Jews. While he didn't believe the story, he sent it to Mark, saying, "You're a journalist, you figure out what it is." This is the first known discovery and investigation of such an artifact.

    Story

    In "The Lampshade," author Mark Jacobson tells of how he obtained an artifact of the holocaust. This is stream of consciousness history at its best. In the course of telling the story of the lampshade, Jacobson details the story of the holocaust, Buchenwald concentration camp, holocaust deniers, New Orleans, Hurricane Katrina and much more. It is a fascinating journey that at times is riveting while at others is revolting. This story is definitely not for everyone and is not for the feint-hearted. Narrator Johnny Heller's easy-going style is perfect as he handles the nuances of difficult foreign names and a wide variety of accents.
