More than half a century after Nazi Germany's genocidal assault on the Jewish people, the Holocaust grips our attention as never before, raising hotly-debated questions: how is the Holocaust best remembered? What are its lessons? Who gets to answer those questions? Who owns the Holocaust? These questions provoke disagreements that can be cutthroat or constructive.
