Abstract:

Contends that the condemnation of Goldhagen by leading German Holocaust historians as emotional and unscholarly stems from their own use of scholarship as a defense mechanism. Socialized in the Nazi period, they cannot accept German responsibility for the Holocaust, which Goldhagen bases on the voluntary participation of ordinary Germans in the killing of Jews. Perpetrators and victims disappear from their view; they concentrate on impersonal processes. They flee to scholarship in order not to face the concrete reality of the Holocaust, which can be adequately described only as Goldhagen describes it: with the help of literary methods, involving emotion and imagination.
