In 25 papers from a 1998 symposium at the Vatican, European and North American theologians and religious thinkers from Jewish and Protestant as well as Catholic traditions grapple with the inescapable moral question of whether, and if so how, believers can reconcile their faith in a just and merciful God with the mass murder of millions of innocents during the Holocaust. Also included are an interview with Marek Edelman, the last surviving leader of the Warsaw Ghetto uprising, and excerpts from the writings of Moshe Flinker, Etty Hillesum, and Dietrich Bonhoeffer.

In September 1997, 30 scholars gathered at the Pontifical Gregorian University in Rome for a three-day conference focused on the issues of good and evil in light of the Holocaust. They were joined by several hundred other participants--Jewish, Protestant, and Catholic theologians and religious thinkers from many countries. Presented here is a selection of the papers. The book begins with an essay by Emil Fackenheim, a rabbi and survivor of the Holocaust, on the need for a post-Holocaust theology. Other highlights include excerpts from the writings of Moshe Flinker, an Orthodox Jew who wrote a diary in Hebrew in Brussels, where his family had taken refuge after fleeing the Netherlands; excerpts from An Interrupted Life and Letters from Westerbok by Etty Hillesum, a Dutch Jew who died in Auschwitz; and excerpts from a proposal for a new Christian ethic, by Dietrich Bonhoeffer, a theologian connected with various groups of the resistance against Nazism, who was executed in a Bavarian concentration camp in 1945.
