The Holocaust in Contemporary Life

  • Steve Hochstadt
Part of the Documents in History book series (DH)


The Holocaust demands a response. The fact that a powerful 20th-century nation organized the killing of millions as a state project has forced people in Europe and across the world to acknowledge an ugly abscess under the skin of modern society. As the previous section displayed, it has been difficult for groups of people to find the social courage to make appropriate responses. Every response bears political, intellectual, and emotional weight, and each effort has been controversial. Powerful voices urge an end to dealing with the past, while others insist that more needs to be done.
