Booklist Review

Miller traveled through six countries--Germany, Austria, the Netherlands, France, the USSR, and the U.S.--in an effort to perceive how the Holocaust is remembered. She writes about the discomfiting struggle between repression of the memories of that horrible time and the necessity of never allowing its horror to be forgotten. Miller found that rationalization and relativization are the most common and insidious forms of memory suppression, and she concludes, "We must remind ourselves that the Holocaust was not six million. It was one, plus one, plus one. Only in understanding that civilized people must defend the one, by one, by one can the Holocaust, the incomprehensible, be given meaning." Miller's book, a Jewish Book Club alternate selection, delivers a powerful message. Notes; to be indexed. --George Cohen


Publisher's Weekly Review

Miller examines the effects of Holocaust memories on six countries, finding that Germany's young generation feels anger and shame, while Austrians, Hitler's first enthusiastic allies, now paint themselves as his first victims. According to PW , ``This shocking survey is itself an act of remembrance.'' (Aug.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved
