The Holocaust and the Historians

Lucy S. Dawidowicz

ISBN 9780674405677

Publication date: 08/15/1983

The renowned author of The War Against the Jews sets out to solve a historiographical mystery. Why has the mass murder of European Jews been overlooked or trivialized by historians throughout the world? In a forceful, outspoken work, Lucy Dawidowicz looks for explanations.


  • Professor Dawidowicz’s work embodies high standards of scholarship. The analysis is shrewd and generally fair, and the comparisons often brilliantly perceptive… A valuable contribution to the literature of the Second World War and the Holocaust.
