Few essays about the Holocaust are better known or more important than Primo Levis reflections on what he called the gray zone, a reality in which moral ambiguity and compromise were pronounced. In this volume accomplished Holocaust scholars,MoreFew essays about the Holocaust are better known or more important than Primo Levis reflections on what he called the gray zone, a reality in which moral ambiguity and compromise were pronounced.

In this volume accomplished Holocaust scholars, among them Raul Hilberg, Gerhard L. Weinberg, Christopher Browning, Peter Hayes, and Lynn Rapaport, explore the terrain that Levi identified. Together they bring a necessary interdisciplinary focus to bear on timely and often controversial topics in cutting-edge Holocaust studies that range from historical analysis to popular culture. While each essay utilizes a particular methodology and argues for its own thesis, the volume as a whole advances the claim that the more we learn about the Holocaust, the more complex that event turns out to be.

Only if ambiguities and compromises in the Holocaust and its aftermath are identified, explored, and at times allowed to remain - lest resolution deceive us - will our awareness of the Holocaust and its implications be as full as possible.
