Holocaust Memory: Disturbing, Perplexing, Riveting-- Essential

By Michael Berenbaum

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), April 2006

Berenbaum describes a shift in Holocaust education. Previously, it was used to teach Jewish particularism; now, it is used to teach tolerance, pluralism, and democracy in the United States and especially in Europe. Jews have responded by remembering suffering and transmitting that memory in order to fortify conscience, to plead for decency, to strengthen values, and thus to intensify a commitment to human dignity.
