The Holocaust is a pervasive presence in British culture and society. Schools have been legally required to deliver Holocaust education, the government helps to fund student visits to Auschwitz, the Imperial War Museum's permanent Holocaust Exhibition has attracted millions of visitors, and Britain has an annually commemorated Holocaust Memorial Day. What has prompted this development, how has it unfolded, and why has it happened now? How does it relate to Britain's post-war history, its contemporary concerns, and the wider "globalisation" of Holocaust memory? What are the multiple shapes that British Holocaust consciousness assumes and the consequences of their rapid emergence? Why have the so-called "lessons" of the Holocaust enjoyed such popularity in Britain? Through analysis of changing engagements with the Holocaust in political, cultural and memorial landscapes over the past generation, this book addresses these questions, demonstrating the complexities of Holocaust consciousness and reflecting on the contrasting ways that history is used in Britain today.

About the Author:

Andy Pearce is Lecturer in Holocaust and History Education at the Centre for Holocaust Education, Institute of Education, University of London. He is also the Reviews Editor for Holocaust Studies: A Journal of Culture and History.

Review:

'With this book, Andy Pearce provides the necessary and long overdue update to Tony Kushner’s seminal research on the place of the Holocaust in British culture. This new study is very welcome, because in the last twenty years Britain’s engagement with the Holocaust has grown considerably.. Andy Pearce’s work will play a major role in shaping scholarly debates on the place of the Holocaust in British memory culture.'-Emiliano Perra, University of Winchester
