...the work is significant. The editors have chosen Harry's friends wisely, and the essayists honor Harry with their wisdom.

Shofar: An Interdisciplinary Journal Of Jewish Studies - Michael Berenbaum
"...the work is significant. The editors have chosen Harry's friends wisely, and the essayists honor Harry with their wisdom."
In honoring Cargas, as founding editor of Holocaust and Genocide Studies and the only Catholic ever appointed to the International Advisory Board at Yad Vashem (the Holocaust Memorial Center, Jerusalem), Elie Wiesel, Kurt Vonnegut, Franklin Littell ("father of Holocaust education in the US"), Eugene Fisher (Executive Director, Secretariat for Catholic-Jewish Relations, National Conference of Catholic Bishops), and 17 other diverse voices ponder Holocaust memory and reflection, texts, the aftermath, and reflections for Harry (who died in 1998).
