Holocaust, Jewish (1939-1945) Influence
Holocaust, Jewish (1939-1945) Historiography
Summarizes Goldhagen's theses and the objections of German historians. Argues for the legitimacy of his attribution of the Holocaust to an "eliminatory antisemitism", as against the functionalist explanations of the German historians who undervalue the moral and ideological dimensions. Contends that it is natural and right that a historiography from the point of view of the victims should place the accents differently from that written by the perpetrators.
