Abstract "Though best known as the author of the landmark 1961 work The Destruction of the European Jews, the historian Raul Hilberg produced a variety of archival research, personal essays, and other works over a career that spanned half a century. The Anatomy of the Holocaust collects some of Hilberg's most essential and groundbreaking writings-many of them published in obscure journals or otherwise inaccessible to nonspecialists-in a single volume. Supplemented with commentary and notes from Hilberg's longtime German editor and his biographer, it not only offers a multifaceted look at the man and the scholar, but also traces the evolution of Holocaust research from a marginal subdiscipline into a diverse and vital intellectual project"-- Provided by publisher.
General note"Originally published in German as Anatomie des Holocaust: Essays und Erinnerungen, © S. Fischer Verlag GmbH, Frankfurt am Main, 2016"--title page verso.
