Overview

Beginning with Marcel Ophus's documentary The Sorrow and the Pity (1970) there has been an attempt to question the idea of a totally unified, courageous and resistant wartime France. Even more startling have been the increasingly shocking revelations that the politics of collaboration were a mere extension of a deep-seated French anti-semitic tradition. In the shadow of these developments French writers and philosophers today are reflecting on the meaning of Jewish identity in the contemporary world.

Auschwitz and After analyses for the first time how the memory of Auschwitz and the collaboration continue to haunt the French. These critical evaluations are accompianed by provocative essays on the "jewish Question" and the politics of race as they have been studied by writers, historians, philosophers and film makers in postwar France.

Editorial Reviews

Jewish Book World
The recent admission by French President Chirac of his country's guilt in the deportation of thousands of Jews to Auschwitz, makes this excellent collection of articles on all facets of France and the Holocaust, most timely. The articles, many appearing for the first time, cover the historical, cultural, philosophical and even cinematic features of the country's involvement with the Jewish Question during this tragic era.
