A powerful collection of commentary on the Holocaust by international writers from nine disciplines. The volume forms a response to the Holocaust's demands on memory and on thought, and is an occasion to encounter the Holocaust both as history and as possibility. Contributors provided essays on art, politics, law, and education. The 38 contributors include: Stephen Feinstein, Director, Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies; Carol Ann Reed, Director, Holocaust Education and Memorial Centre of Toronto; Sid Chafetz, artist and professor of art; Henry Friedlander, professor of history, Brooklyn College; David M. Crowe, professor of history, Elon College; Mark Osiel, professor of law, University of Iowa; James E. Young, professor of English and Judaic studies, University of Massachusetts at Amherst; Sybil Milton, Vice-President, Independent Experts: Switzerland-World War II; and Zygmunt Bauman, emeritus professor of sociology, University of Leeds. The book has won several awards, including the Tom Fairley Award for Editorial Excellence, Second Place, to copyeditor Carol Berger.
