Abstract:

More than 50 years after the Holocaust, European and other countries are confronting newly emerging memories and guilt filled ghosts from the past. The campaign for the restitution of Jewish property stolen during the Holocaust touched a raw nerve within European society and, together with the end of the Cold War and generational change, created a need to re-evaluate conventional historical truths. This book reviews how the issue was dealt with in different countries and how national myths must be re-examined.
