"it is essential reading for advanced students and scholars who perhaps think that they possess anything near an understanding of the impact of "the tremendum that is Holocaust. --Choice: Recommended "An invaluable text. The individual essays are gems, written by recognized authorities in their respective disciplines, and they work as a seamless whole to address the fundamental issues raised by the Holocaust. The volume offers both as a challenge and a stimulus for future thought... Erudite and pathbreaking." --Alan L. Berger, Raddock Eminent Scholar Chair of Holocaust Studies, Florida Atlantic University "This is a serious book...The scholars represented here wrestle with substantial issues." --Jewish Book World
