'Remembering for the Future must surely rank as one of the publishing miracles of our time. The press that achieved this, Palgrave, is to be congratulated on its imagination and commitment. These volumes surely offer us as compendious a commemoration of the Shoah as we can possibly need.' - Leslie Griffiths, Methodist Recorder
'How did the 2000 conference relate to that of 1988 in terms of content? What stands out is the enormous amount of common ground...For all the recurrence of major themes, 2000 is far more than the repetition of 1998. A significant difference is the increased attention given to the issue of Holocaust denial and the lesser attention given to educational matters. The former is connected with the successful defence mounted by American academic Deborah Lipstadt against the charge of libel brought against her by rightwing historian David Irving. The second conference also makes clear the determination not to be taken unawares by any novel medium for the dissemination of anti-Semitism; thus this volume contains a paper on the use of the internet made by anti-Semites to circulate and inculate their propaganda. New-style feminism has also been brought into the picture through a piece on Resistance and gender. There are also various papers on the legal issues involved in the restitution of stolen assets and in the recovery of works of art looted by the Nazis and their sympathisers. At times, one feels, there can be few matters of concern to the contemporary world in which the Holocaust is not somehow involved.' - Lionel Kochan, Honory Research Fellow, Oxford Centre for Hewbrew and Jewish Studies, in The Times Higher
'Altogether these three volumes constitute a comprehensive stock-taking, a major statement of the current state of discussion about their subject...Given the size of this collection, that so high a standard of scholarship could be maintained is remarkable...The significance of Remembering for the Future therefore lies not in this or that excellent article, but in the sheer weight of the scholarship presented and represented. Altogether this is a collection which no serious library can afford to do without.' - Times Literary Supplement
