Abstract:

Formulates two essential questions regarding communism and the Shoah: how will these phenomena be remembered, and how unique is the Shoah? Contrasts the will of the post-Holocaust generation to preserve its memory with that of the victims (and even the partisans) of communism who have chosen to obliterate its memory. Contends that the issue of the Shoah haunts the consciences of Christians. Argues that consciousness of the Shoah as a unique event in history is not contradictory to sensitivity to other massacres in modern history, such as those during the communist period. Ch. 1 (pp. 23-36), "La destruction physique", describes aspects of the implementation of the Nazi plan to annihilate the Jews. Ch. 5 (pp. 117-152), "La mémoire", underscores the role of theology for a more profound comprehension of the Shoah.
