This insightful book seeks to address the meaning of Shoah and its effect on the meaning of life in a post-Holocaust world. With a methodological, pedagogical, and theological thrust, the author's objective is to preserve and present the Shoah as living history for Christians and Jews in an age of ethnic cleansing and Godforsakeness.
