The Holocaust as a "Subject"

By Earl L. Dachslager

Eugene Borowitz, November 11, 1977

The author explores potential problems and issues which arise when the Holocaust becomes just another "subject" among other academic, artistic, historical or conceptual subjects. Teaching, remembering and learning about the Holocaust are necessary, the author acknowledges, but these activities also create the dangerous possibility that the absolute horror, and uniqueness, of the Holocaust in human history will become hidden or forgotten.
