American Christian and Jewish scholars reveal the effect life stories and personal experiences of the Holocaust have had on their thinking and the issues and questions that engage them, and how that effect has changed over the years. The 15 topics include post-Holocaust Jewish reflections on German theology, from ignorance to insight, from anger to inquiry, and transforming the void.
