Synopses & Reviews
"Stunningly brilliant, standard-setting for scholarship in the field, Henry Greenspan's 2010 version of On Listening to Holocaust Survivors transcends the path-breaking first edition by putting into bold relief the insights that emerge from his more than thirty years of intensive collaboration with Holocaust survivors. By emphasizing the importance of ongoing conversation, rather than one-time testimony, Greenspan challenges conventional wisdom and wisely transforms the process of discerning and responding to what survivors of the Holocaust and other genocides have to say."--John K. Roth, Edward J. Sexton Professor Emeritus of Philosophy, and Founding Director, Center for the Study of the Holocaust, Genocide, and Human Rights, Claremont McKenna College.
"Summarizes thirty years of the author's interviews and re-interviews with the same core group of Holocaust survivors. Survivors' recounting is thus approached, not as one-time testimony, but as the fruit of sustained conversation"--Provided by publisher.
