Overview

Thirteen distinguished scholars examine the representation and reception of the Holocaust within a range of national settings and generic forms. The authors draw on historical writing, testimonial literature, monuments and memorials, theological reflections, and documentary and imaginative poetry, prose, film, and drama to assess both the impact of the Holocaust on postwar consciousness and the impact of contemporary modes of scholarship on our understanding of the Holocaust itself.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
From the still-unsettling perspective of half a century, 13 contributors evaluate Holocaust fallout from four vantage points: through historical writings, literature, and cinema; in relation to the Zionist movement and the state of Israel; and its impact on American Jewish life, and on European Jewry in the postwar period. The incisive articles result from meetings at Indiana University in 1995. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
