How has Britain understood the Holocaust? This interdisciplinary volume explores popular narratives of the Second World War and cultural representations of the Holocaust from the Nuremberg trials of 1945-6, to the establishment of a national memorial day by the start of the twenty-first century.

The historiography of Britain's relationship with the Holocaust is now an area of significant scholarly interest. Caroline Sharples and Olaf Jensen's edited collection provides an up-to-date review of some of the central debates regarding Holocaust remembrance and representation. the collection provides an important interdisciplinary study of how Britain has understood, represented and memorialized the Holocaust in both the past and present.
