520 |a The recording and the inescapable task of judging great wrongs in the past presents historians with their most difficult assignment. For those who have either lived through such injustice or been in some way responsible for it the impositions of memory are painful and inescapable. Memory shapes the future, and the recollections of past suffering haunt and may overwhelm future generations. 
520 8 |a In 1938 the National Socialist Party in Germany began the final preparations for the systematic genocide of the Jews throughout Europe. For the Jews, whose national loyalties had long exceeded any ties of ethnicity, the programme of extermination was an act not merely of monstrous cruelty but of humiliation and treachery. 
520 8 |a In this collection scholars, artists and writers consider the ways in which the events of 1938 to 1945 have been, might be, and will be remembered. The records of the Holocaust are vast and various, ranging from the museum at Auschwitz to the cartoons of Art Spiegelman, from the elegiac stories of Levi to the filmed testimonies of the death camp survivors. The perspectives brought to bear here are rich and various - impassioned, objective, personal, poetical, historical and philosophical.
