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.
