About this title

Synopsis:

Argues that the Holocaust has lost its universal significance and that in setting Jews apart as victims and as morally righteous, walls are built between Jewish life and other life

From Publishers Weekly:

Certain to evoke strong reactions, this impassioned, meditative essay by Roiphe, an American Jewish journalist, is rooted in her belief that Jews need to come to terms with the Holocaust, to face their anger, to accept the Nazi genocide both as a specifically Jewish tragedy and as a human event, part of the mass slaughter of the 20th century. Around this central premise, Roiphe, whose books include Lovingkindness and Up the Sandbox , builds chapters on Jews' relations with Christians, blacks, Poles and the Vatican; Russian anti-Semitism and the Soviet conflict with Jewish emigration; Jews in American politics; and the tensions that divide Arabs and Israelis. On each emotionally charged issue, Roiphe strives to understand how opposing sides feel, to weight contrary claims and interests. Her objectivity makes this challenging, important essay a beacon in the discussion of controversies that have long divided Jewsamong themselves and from the world at large.
