Microhistories of the Holocaust, Hardback Book

Microhistories of the Holocaust Hardback

Edited by Claire Zalc, Tal Bruttmann

Part of the War and Genocide series


How does scale affect our understanding of the Holocaust?

In the vastness of its implementation and the sheer amount of death and suffering it produced, the genocide of Europe's Jews presents special challenges for historians, who have responded with work ranging in scope from the world-historical to the intimate.

In particular, recent scholarship has demonstrated a willingness to study the Holocaust at scales as focused as a single neighborhood, family, or perpetrator.

This volume brings together an international cast of scholars to reflect on the ongoing microhistorical turn in Holocaust studies, assessing its historiographical pitfalls as well as the distinctive opportunities it affords researchers.
