Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0853039240, Hardcover)

This collection brings together a number of cutting edge Holocaust histories written by younger scholars and includes an introduction reflecting on the role of 'the local' in Holocaust studies. In doing so, the book emphasizes seeking local answers to global questions on the origins of genocide. As such, it mirrors the tendency in Holocaust Studies to draw a picture - on a very local canvas - of how the Holocaust developed. The contributions offer new and detailed empirical investigations of the Holocaust from across occupied Europe - from 'aryanization policy' in Bucharest to the role of the indigenous population in the Hungarian countryside, right up to a consideration of the operation of Holocaust memory in contemporary Poland. The Holocaust and Local History demonstrates the enduring vibrancy of contemporary Holocaust studies.
