Overview

Meditations of a Holocaust Traveler

This book travels across time, place, and subject to ponder the meaning of the Holocaust for contemporary cultures.

Markle grasps at the Holocaust, not only from the writings of survivors and academic specialists, but also from his experience as a “tourist” of the Holocaust. He challenges the way we typically think about the Holocaust: them versus us; then versus now; there versus here. He travels across time, place, and subject to ponder the meaning of the Holocaust for contemporary cultures.
