Auschwitz: Contemporary Jewish and Christian Encounters
"Dina Wardi, an Israeli Jewish psychologist noted for her work with Holocaust survivors and their children, has written an account of her experiences leading a multinational group of Catholic nuns and priests during a conference on anti-Semitism, persecutions, and the Holocaust, which included visits to the Auschwitz concentration camp in Poland. The result is a dynamic portrayal of a trip to this most sacred place that has profoundly affected the lives and mission of all involved." "Auschwitz is an important study of the Jewish-Christian dialogue regarding Christian Holocaust guilt, anti-Semitism in the Catholic Church, and ecumenism."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
