Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Rozett, Director of the Library at Yad Vashem, intends readers to learn to think critically about the Holocaust in particular, and history in general, through this collection of seven essays based largely on his lectures. Although he does place writings about the Holocaust within their historical, social, and political contexts, he also examines them as intellectual and emotional constructs. He describes critical reading of books and articles on the Holocaust, and the place of the Holocaust in popular histories and historical atlases. He closely examines the writings on personal accounts and on Jewish leadership, and how the press has used and abused the history of the Holocaust in accounts about the Middle East. He closes with a case study describing how the history of the Holocaust was used against the Israelis in Operation Defensive Shield, and the implications for studies of the twenty-first century. Distributed in the US by ISBS.
