About the Author:

The late Harry James Cargas was professor emeritus of literature and language at Webster University and author of thirty-two books, including Voices from the Holocaust.

Review:

"Asks bold questions and encourages readers to look at the tragedy of the Holocaust in a new light."―Bulletin of the Arnold and Leona Institute of Holocaust Research

"If there is a single word that marks Cargas's work, it is 'moving.'"―Commonweal

"A most valuable book: It deepens our perception of the moral enormity of the Holocaust."―Ethnic Conflict Research Digest

"Filled with the insights of scholars who share with us their deepest reflections on the Holocaust. This moving volume is essential for those interested in the Holocaust and for those who want to honor Harry Cargas for his unique benefactions to both Christianity and Judaism."―Robert F. Drinan, Georgetown University Law Center

"A timely book for unseasoned questions. . . . The questions asked, the analysis provided, avoid simplification and easy piety."―SeedHouse

"Cargas has insightfully grasped the central issue of the collapse of the moral universe that was engendered by the Shoah."―Alan Berger, Florida Atlantic University
