In recent years, a lively debate has developed in Poland on the question of what responsibility the Poles share for the mass murder of the Jews, which took place largely on Polish soil. This debate was sparked off by the showing in Poland of Claude Lanzmann's film, Shoah , which revealed how deeply-rooted anti-Jewish prejudice could still be found in the Polish countryside. Anti-semitism is something which Poland has preferred to forget. But before the Second World War hostility to the Jews was widespread and this climate of pervasive anti-semitism may have facilitated the Nazis' murderous plans. But Poles now, with great courage, are facing this dark side of their past. This book, translated and edited by a leading British historian of Poland, Antony Polonsky, is a major contribution to the history of the Holocaust. It gathers together the most important contribution to the current debate, revealing the agony many Poles feel about their lack of action during the war.

Remembering the Holocaust explains why the Holocaust has come to be considered the central event of the 20th century, and what this means. Presenting Jeffrey Alexander's controversial essay that, in the words of Geoffrey Hartman, has already become a classic in the Holocaust literature, and following up with challenging and equally provocative responses to it, this book offers a sweeping historical reconstruction of the Jewish mass murder as it evolved in the popular imagination of Western peoples, as well as an examination of its consequences. Alexander's inquiry points to a broad cultural transition that took place in Western societies after World War II: from confidence in moving past the most terrible of Nazi wartime atrocities to pessimism about the possibility for overcoming violence, ethnic conflict, and war. The Holocaust has become the central tragedy of modern times, an event which can no longer be overcome, but one that offers possibilities to extend its moral lessons beyond Jews to victims of other types of secular and religious strife. Following Alexander's controversial thesis is a series of responses by distinguished scholars in the humanities and social sciences--Martin Jay, Bernhard Giesen, Michael Rothberg, Robert Manne, Nathan Glazer, and Elihu & Ruth Katz--considering the implications of the universal moral relevance of the Holocaust. A final response from Alexander in a postscript focusing on the repercussions of the Holocaust in Israel concludes this forthright and engaging discussion. Remembering the Holocaust is an all-too-rare debate on our conception of the Holocaust, how it has evolved over the years, and the profound effects it will have on the way we envision the future.

Holocaust education is a controversial and rapidly evolving field. This book, which critically analyses the very latest research, discusses a number of the most important debates which are emerging within it. Adopting a truly global perspective, Contemporary Debates in Holocaust Education explores both teachers' and students' levels of Holocaust knowledge as well as their attitudes and approaches towards the subject. Moreover, it employs a forward-looking perspective by thinking about how the subject will be taught when there are no survivors remaining and what challenges and opportunities digital technology, social media and online learning offer the modern teacher of the Holocaust. This book seeks to shift the parameters of existing debates and offer an insightful commentary on the nature, scope and direction of Holocaust education, which will be of great use to academics, teachers and policy-makers alike.

This book is the first comprehensive, as well as impartial, account of the various ways the people of the state of Israel, beginning with their social integration in the 1950s, grappled with the still fresh memory of the Holocaust and with finding a suitable way of commemorating it and passing that memory on to future generations. The public debate in Israel in the 1950s over the question of the Jewish response to the Nazi policy of extermination in areas under German domination during the Holocaust is the core of the book. Contrary to common assumption the book exposes the disagreements and differences of opinion which guided, and disturbed, Israeli society and its leadership, and raised fundamental questions concerning the collective memory of the Holocaust. Thus it throws light on the nature of Israeli society in the fifties as well as on the fears and the needs of its political leaders.

This book is the first comparative study of the ways in which the Holocaust has been memorialized in Australia, Britain and New Zealand. It examines: -- the processes by which the Holocaust entered Jewish and mainstream cultures -- representations of the uniquesness and/or universality of the Holocaust -- uses and abuses of the terminology and imagery of the Holocaust -- the relationship between Holocaust remembrance and Jewish unity and identity -- interpretations of the lessons of the Holocaust. Despite the different national histories of Australia, Britain, and New Zealand, and notwithstanding variations in Jewish community size and composition, the Holocaust has been memorialized in remarkably similar ways, although in many respects these are significantly different from the American experience.
