Product Description The book presents the reflections of these scholars and public figures whose work involves the subject of the Holocaust. The essays are arranged from most general to most specific - only approximately as none of these papers are confined solely to reflections or to matters of practice. The five that form the first section directly confront the Holocaust as a phenomenon: the extent to which it can be understood, and the challenges it presents to research, to ethics, to Judaism and Christianity, to the Polish people and Europe. The next and largest section takes a reader inside the work of these scholars and looks at how they do it, starting with papers broadly considering their approach to the task. Further on are essays describing problems encountered in the course of research - some of them methodological, some of them as tangible as organizational crises of court battles. The last part is a brief, but it serves as the coda to this book. Eleonora Bergman pragmatically explains why we must study the Holocaust despite - and because of - the puzzles is presents; then, speaking from the experience of having plumbed the depths of that enormity. Elie Wiesel closes the book with a call from Auschwitz. He summons us to preserve hope - hope as the condition of our humanity. LANGUAGE: EN
