One, by One, by One: Facing the Holocaust
Judith Miller travels to six nations whose modern identities have been affected by the specter of the Holocaust, to explore the ways people have consciously and unconsciously shaped their memories of this almost unspeakable tragedy. Reporting from a survivor reunion in a small West German town, the Barbie trial in France, the Waldheim controversy in Austria, and many other important sites, Miller sifts through the forgotten evidence, correcting false impressions, explaining how nations and individuals have "blurred" the specificity of the Holocaust by comparing it to other mass killings. At the same time, she searches for ways in which the truth about the Holocaust can be transmitted intact to future generations by examining each nation's attempts to face the legacy of the world's worst genocide. - Back cover.
