MEDIA REVIEWS

'This is a unique and highly valuable volume, focusing on the impact renowned authors like Appelfeld, Celan, Wiesel, and others had on the conscience of the world by sharing their experiences during the Holocaust.' - Randolph Braham, Director of The Rosenthal Institute for Holocaust Studies, City University of New York, USA

'A powerful collection of essays that describe post-Communist Romania as a society torn between the dignified civic remembrance of the Holocaust and the old anti-Semitic reflexes of the extreme right.' - Radu Ioanid, historian and author of The Holocaust in Romania

'Local History, Transnational Memory in the Romanian Holocaust challenges the post-1989 generation to engage in a more thorough analysis and exploration of the past. The volume is a landmark among the inter-disciplinary, transnational, and transcultural studies on the representations of the Holocaust. The editors and the authors, both from the West and from Romania itself, use a wide range of interdisciplinary approaches and are well versed in the problems facing the current stage of research and the tasks ahead. It seems that after seven decades since the Pogrom in Bucharest, the Iasi Pogrom, and the beginning of the tragedy in Transnistria, the study of the Holocaust in Romania and its cultural representation, has come of age.' - Raphael Vago, Senior Lecturer and Senior Research Fellow, Department of History, Tel Aviv University and Member of the International Commission on the Holocaust in Romania
