Thinking about the Holocaust : after half a century by Alvin H Rosenfeld( )

14 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 2,439 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Thirteen distinguished scholars examine the representation and reception of the Holocaust within a range of national settings and generic forms. The authors draw on historical writing, testimonial literature, monuments and memorials, theological reflections, and documentary and imaginative poetry, prose, film, and drama to assess both the impact of the Holocaust on postwar consciousness and the impact of contemporary modes of scholarship on our understanding of the Holocaust itself
The writer uprooted : contemporary Jewish exile literature by Alvin H Rosenfeld( )

15 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 2,085 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Writer Uprooted is the first book to examine the emergence of a new generation of Jewish immigrant authors in America, most of whom grew up in formerly communist countries. In essays that are both personal and scholarly, the contributors to this collection chronicle and clarify issues of personal and cultural dislocation and loss, but also affirm the possibilities of reorientation and renewal. Writers, poets, translators, and critics describe how they have coped creatively with the trials of displacement and the challenges and opportunities of resettlement in a new land and, for some, authorship in a new language."--Jacket
The end of the Holocaust by Alvin H Rosenfeld( )

28 editions published between 2011 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 1,886 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this provocative work, Alvin H. Rosenfeld contends that the proliferation of books, films, television programs, museums, and public commemorations related to the Holocaust has, perversely, brought about a diminution of its meaning and a denigration of its memory. Investigating a wide range of events and cultural phenomena, such as Ronald Reagan's 1985 visit to the German cemetery at Bitburg, the distortions of Anne Frank's story, and the ways in which the Holocaust has been depicted by such artists and

Deciphering the new antisemitism by Alvin H Rosenfeld( )

14 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 1,370 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Deciphering the New Antisemitism addresses the increasing prevalence of antisemitism on a global scale. Antisemitism takes on various forms in all parts of the world, and the essays in this wide-ranging volume deal with many of them: European antisemitism, antisemitism and Islamophobia, antisemitism and anti-Zionism, and efforts to demonize and delegitimize Israel. Contributors are an international group of scholars who clarify the cultural, intellectual, political, and religious conditions that give rise to antisemitic words and deeds. These landmark essays are noteworthy for their timeliness and ability to grapple effectively with the serious issues at hand.--

The Americanization of the Holocaust by Alvin H Rosenfeld( Book )

4 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 44 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Contends that when Americanized, the Holocaust undergoes universalization and loses its specific Jewish character. This tendency can be seen in the expositions of museums such as the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, DC, and the Museum of Tolerance in Los Angeles, as well as in the art work "Holocaust Project" by Judy Chicago, where the Holocaust is equated with the sufferings of the Blacks in America and the abuse of women. Another tendency is the American reluctance to confront the brutal and horrific essence of the Holocaust. For instance, the play "The Diary of Anne Frank", by F. Goodrich and A. Hackett, and the film version both downplay Anne's Jewishness and the fact that all of the characters are doomed to death. The latter tendency led to the growing cult of survivors and rescuers as the bright side of the Holocaust, manifested in Spielberg's "Schindler's List" and the proliferation of books on Righteous Gentiles, as well as the founding of the Institute of the Righteous Acts and the Jewish Foundation of Christian Rescuers by R. Schulweis. Virtuous as they are, the Gentile rescuers cannot counterbalance the evil of the Nazi Holocaust
Anne Frank and the future of Holocaust memory by Alvin H Rosenfeld( Book )

4 editions published in 2005 in English and Chinese and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since its initial publication in 1947, Anne Frank's diary has had a wider circulation than any other personal narrative of World War II, and she herself has in a sense become a primary emblem of victimization. This is due to the optimism of Frank's diary and its message of hope, faith, tolerance, and understanding. Adaptations of Frank's story, such as the play by Goodrich and Hackett, try to emphasize the message of "triumph of good over evil" and to universalize and de-Judaize it. Warns against the emphasis on optimism, which overshadows the reality of Auschwitz and Bergen-Belsen. In recent years attempts have been made to reconstruct Anne's experiences after her arrest by the Nazis. Both the trends of re-Judaization and universalization of her story have continued. Regrettably, her story is being manipulated by various political groups for their own purposes, in particular by Palestinian authors
