Texte du rabat

This single volume traces three approaches to the "study" of the Holocaust--through notions of history, theories of memory, and a focus on art and representation.  It introduces readers to the different ways we have come to "understand" the Holocaust, gives them an opportunity to ask questions about those conclusions, and examines how this event can be understood once all the survivors are gone. In addition, the book looks at the different disciplines — history, sociology, religious studies, and literary interpretation, among others — through which studies of the Holocaust take place. A three section organization covers history, the treatment of eyewitness and the testimonies produced by them, and the possibility of literature and other arts presenting a better understanding of Holocaust events than the former. MARKET: For individuals interested in a historical interpretation of the Holocaust— even more complex and troubling than the event itself.
