The most extensive collection of its kind, A Holocaust Reader: Responses to the Nazi Extermination features writings by theologians, literary figures, cultural critics, philosophers, political theorists, and others. It surveys the major themes raised by the Holocaust and the most provocative and influential responses to these themes and to the Holocaust itself. Organized in a roughly chronological pattern, this collection covers the earliest responses from the postwar period, the emergence of central theological statements in the late sixties and seventies, the development of post-Holocaust thinking in the seventies and eighties, and burgeoning reflections on the significance of the death camps. It also examines the ties between the Holocaust and important recent events and episodes in Western culture.
From the Publisher:
The most comprehensive and representative collection of its kind, A Holocaust Reader: Responses to the Nazi Extermination features writings by theologians, literary figures, cultural critics, philosophers, political theorists, and others. It surveys the major themes raised by the Holocaust and examines the most provocative and influential responses to these topics and to the Holocaust itself. Organized in a roughly chronological pattern, the volume opens with early responses from the postwar period. Subsequent sections cover the emergence of central theological statements in the late 1960s and 1970s, the development of post-Holocaust thinking in the 1970s and 1980s, and burgeoning reflections on the significance of the death camps. Connections between the Holocaust and important events and episodes in Western culture in the 1980s and 1990s are also discussed.
A Holocaust Reader: Responses to the Nazi Extermination offers selections from Theodor W. Adorno, Jean Amery, Hannah Arendt, Omer Bartov, Eliezer Berkovits, Michael Andre Bernstein, Martin Buber, Arthur A. Cohen, A. Roy Eckardt, Emil L. Fackenheim, Saul Friedlander, Amos Funkenstein, Irving Greenberg, Andreas Huyssen, Hans Jonas, Berel Lang, Primo Levi, Johann Baptist Metz, Richard Rubenstein, Kenneth Seeskin, Franklin Sherman, David Tracy, Elie Wiesel, Robert E. Willis, and Michael Wyschogrod. Ideal for courses in the Holocaust, Jewish studies, and the philosophy of religion, this extensive collection will also be of interest to general readers and scholars.
