From the internationally renowned author of the bestselling Hitler's Willing Executioners, A Moral Reckoning is a penetrating moral inquiry into the Catholic Church's role in the Holocaust that goes beyond anything previously written on the subject.Daniel Jonah Goldhagen shows that the Church has, even according to its own doctrine an unacknowledged duty of repair. He explores it, analyses the Church's tactics of evasion, and delineates all that the Church must do to repair the harm it inflicted on the Jews, and to heal itself.
