The Holocaust was a monumental event that changed the way that we as human beings think about our relationship to one another. It is an event in history that has remained present in the world’s perception of Germany as a reunified country, acted as a blemish on the national histories of countries such as Poland and France, and has been offered as a reason for the existence of the state of Israel. For these reasons and others (political, cultural, metaphysical, and existential), the Holocaust remains an event that begs for adequate analysis and representation.
