Netherlands and Nazi Genocide Papers of the 21st Annual Scholars' Conference
|Author: ||Colijn, G.|
These papers highlight the contradictions in the Netherlands which led on one hand to a Dutch Nazi Party and a very low rate of survival among Dutch Jews, and on the other hand to facets of considerable resistance. Papers also discuss the symbolic message of Anne Frank. Others, written by those personally involved, pay the tributes of Dutch survivors and narrate the experience of Dutch rescuers. Others give fresh insight into such specialized topics as the experience of survivors in the DP camps after the war, the confrontation with Holocaust revisionists, the present day use of film and drama to convey the Holocaust, and the personal struggle with the Holocaust, e.g. the case of Gottfried Wagner.
". . . provides significant information about the Dutch experience and related issues. . . . The second section of the book will provide perhaps some of the most interesting articles. . . . Scholars will find Willis' summary of recent Church statements and Moore's analysis of post-Shoah interpretation of Christian scriptures exceptionally useful." -- Shofar
