Holocaust Origins Implementatn : Origins, Implementation, Aftermath
Holocaust: Origins, Implementation, Aftermath presents a critical and important study of the holocaust. Complete with an introduction that summarises the state of the field, this book contains major reinterpretations by leading holocaust authors along with key texts on testimony, memory, and justice after the catastrophe.
The book challenges conventional interpretations and truths of the holocaust, whether it has to do with the centrality of anti-Semitism, the importance of economic calculations or the timing of the decision on the "Final Solution"
Starting with the background of the Holocaust by focusing on anti-Semitism and scientific racism as being at the root of the "Final Solution". The book then examines the context of the decision to unleash the genocide of the Jews. Three powerful texts provide readers with a close look at the psychology of a perpetrator, the attitude of the bystanders, and the fate of the victims. Finally, there is an analysis of survivor's oral testamonies, a deeply revealing discussion on the limits of transmitting the experience of the camps to posterity, and a powerful plea for the prosecution of crimes against humanity.
