Lessons and Legacies IX PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Lessons and Legacies IX free pdf "Memory, History, and Responsibility: Reassessments of the Holocaust, Implications for the Future" contains the highlights from the ninth 'Lessons and Legacies' conference. The conference, held during the height of the genocide in Darfur, sought to reexamine how the darkness of the Holocaust continues to shadow human existence more than sixty years after World War II left the Third Reich in ruins. The collection opens with Saul Friedlander's call for interdisciplinary approaches to Holocaust research. The essays that follow draw on the latest methodologies in the fields of history, literature, philosophy, religion, film, and gender studies, among others. Together both the leading scholars of the Holocaust and the next generation of scholars engage the difficult reality - as raised by editors Petropoulos, Rapaport, and Roth in their introduction - that the legacies of the Holocaust have not proved sufficient in intervening against human-made mass death, let alone preventing or eliminating it.
