Abstract:

"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 students 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."--Publisher's website.
