Marking Evil : Holocaust Memory in the Global Age, Hardback Book

Marking Evil : Holocaust Memory in the Global Age Hardback

Edited by Amos Goldberg, Haim Hazan

Part of the Making Sense of History series



Talking about the Holocaust has provided an international language for ethics, victimization, political claims, and constructions of collective identity.

As part of a worldwide vocabulary, that language helps set the tenor of the era of globalization.

This volume addresses manifestations of Holocaust-engendered global discourse by critically examining their function and inherent dilemmas, and the ways in which Holocaust-related matters still instigate public debate and academic deliberation.

It contends that the contradiction between the totalizing logic of globalization and the assumed uniqueness of the Holocaust generates continued intellectual and practical discontent.
