In this insightful and nuanced book, Dennis Klein highlights the relevance of Holocaust testimony and survivor narrative. His unique approach points specifically to Holocaust narratives as "transitional", enabling survivors to be subjects in a collective and shared humanism of the future, in which they and their memories remain constitutive partners in the rethinking of politics, human rights, and global social responsibility. * Kitty Millet, Professor of Modern Jewish Thought and Comparative Jewish Literatures, San Francisco State University, USA *
A truly original and provocative study of how key survivor narratives emerged in the Jewish and wider public in the 1960s-and why they remain significant. It will be appreciated and acclaimed by a wide array of students and scholars from disciplines spanning the humanities and social sciences. * Michael Berkowitz, Professor of Modern Jewish History, University College London, UK *
Accordingly, not only is this study essential reading for scholars of Holocaust and genocide studies, Jewish studies, and Memory studies, but for students and those working in retributive justice, trauma, and conflict aftermath ... [The] book's analytical techniques are unassailable, and Klein's theoretical insights provide an illuminating window into the texts under discussion. * Holocaust Studies *
