The Holocaust and Collective Memory by Peter Novick
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


How and when did the Holocaust come to loom so large in postwar Jewish and American and international life? This is the question that this book sets out to answer. It asks whether defining Jewishness in terms of victimhood alone does not hand Hitler a posthumous victory, and whether claiming uniqueness for the Holocaust does not render other atrocities (Biafra, Rwanda, Kosovo) "not so bad".
