Overview

Against the Apocalypse: Responses to Catastrophe in Modern Jewish Culture by David G. Roskies

The Holocaust, in its enormity, has been viewed as an apocalyptic event, standing outside history, without analogy or precedent. Challenging this view, David Roskies places the Holocaust, and the literary responses of victims and survivors, in the context of generations of Jewish response to persecutions, pogroms, communal catastrophes.
