Remembrance, Repentance, Reconciliation: The 25th Anniversary Volume of the Annual Scholars' Conference on the Holocaust and the Churches
Douglas F. Tobler
University Press of America, 1998 - History - 215 pages
This book is a collection of essays from the 25th annual Scholar's Conference on the Holocaust and the Churches. The contributors represent a variety of disciplines, countries, and religious faiths. Several essays invite readers to revisit various issues of the Holocaust reality, including a study of new evidence for anti-Semitism among the Christian missions and a theory of how and when films may have impelled Hitler to the Final Solution. Other chapters explore the role of the Holocaust in Israeli literature and what literature can contribute to our understanding of the Holocaust and its meaning. The book also offers help to teachers at all levels who are planning to integrate more material on the Holocaust into their curricula or who are developing new courses on the subject. Finally, some essays will appeal to those seeking penitence and reconciliation.
