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. Taking its point of departure from the controversy that swirled around the author's aborted appointment as director of the Center for Advanced Holocaust Studies, Holocaust Politics shows how contemporary attitudes and priorities compete to determine that all-important difference.
