Summary
In Holocaust: An American Understanding, Deborah E. Lipstadt reveals how since the end of the war a broad array of Americans have tried to make sense of an inexplicable disaster, and how they came to use the Holocaust as a lens to interpret their own history. Drawing upon extensive research on politics, popular culture, student protests, religious debates and Zionist ideologies, Lipstadt weaves a powerful narrative that ranges from the civil rights movement and Vietnam, to the Rwandan genocide and the bombing of Kosovo
