Featuring 300 alphabetically organized bio-critical essays on writers of memoirs, novels, poetry, short stories, and drama, ranging in length from 1,500 to 7,000 words, this comprehensive scholarly work presents a broad spectrum of voices remembering, interpreting, and reinterpreting one of the twentieth century's most politically and emotionally charged events. Including writers whose works first appeared in Czech, Dutch, English, French, German, Hebrew, Hungarian, Italian, Portuguese, Polish, Russian, Spanish, and Yiddish, this reference provides wide international coverage, though its focus will be on writers whose work is available in English. It will prove a valuable resource to students, scholars, general readers, or to anyone interested in world history. Also includes maps.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"The most authoritative and comprehensive guide available."
-"Lawrence Looks at Books, Gale Reference Reviews, July 2003
"This satisfyingly useful and remarkably comprehensive reference source is sure to support research by academics, students ranging from high school through graduate school, and interested general readers... Highly recommended."
-"Library Journal (starred review), April 15, 2003
"A major addition to Holocaust Studies... Libraries with Holocaust studies courses and others with an interest in this topic should purchase this title, as the number of authors covered and the strong bibliographic component make it an impressive resource for researchers and other serious students. This would also make an excellent purchase for large public libraries."
-"Booklist/RBB (starred review), April 2003
"Kremer's excellent reference work... Provide fresh insights... Kremer's introduction supplies a good overview.... The set's most useful features are its glossary, appendixes, subject indexes, maps, and general index... Essential. All Holocaust collections."
-"Choice, July 2003
""Holocaust Literature, bravely and ably edited by S. Lillian Kremer, reflects various literary, social-historical, and psychological approaches.... Kremer's informative, wide-ranging introduction sees Holocaust literature in a uniquely compelling body of testimony... Even a seasoned reader will find these entries on more than 300 souls, a hundred of them women, mind-stretching."
-John Felstiner, "Los Angeles Times, March 28, 2004
