Reviews

'Literature of the Holocaust is an important work. More than an anthology, it is a comprehensive collection of significant essays by distinguished authors, who provide both an overview and deep insights into Holocaust literature in the major languages of the West ordinarily inaccessible to the English reading world ... Moreover, it grapples with major issues in Holocaust literature, such as the use of testimony and song, and the use and misuse of history. Each essay provides a rich survey and entry point for the study of Holocaust literature. I thought I knew Holocaust literature well, yet this work has given me years of important reading ahead, for which I am grateful. Comprehensive, consistently excellent, clear and yet also concise ... a disquieting work as any good work on the Holocaust must be. It is a work to be cherished.' Michael Berenbaum, American Jewish University, Los Angeles
'[This] book is highly recommended for libraries with large Holocaust collections and academic libraries that support Holocaust and/or literature curriculums.' Chava Pinchuck, Association of Jewish Libraries Reviews
'Highly recommended.' Choice
'In Literature of the Holocaust, contributing authors at once add to this constellation by introducing hitherto untranslated texts to the canon of Holocaust literature; navigate through it by offering geographic and chronological analyses of literary responses to the Holocaust; and gesture towards its immensity.' Natalie Woodward, Notes and Queries
