Overview

"... stimulating and important anthology..." —Holocaust and Genocide Studies

"... a useful and competent volume that can serve as a good introduction to scholarship on the aftermath of the Holocaust." —Times Literary Supplement

More than 50 years after the end of World War II, how do we look back upon and understand the nature and consequences of that catastrophic event? What kind of historical consciousness has developed over the past half century with respect to the Nazi destruction of European Jewry? These questions are explored by a distinguished international group of scholars who draw on history, literature, memory, memorials, and the representation of the Holocaust in the culture to assess the impact of the Holocaust on postwar consciousness.
