The present volume is a selection of studies published previously in Hebrew in
Dapim, by the Institute for Research of the Holocaust Period. They were selected, from a great number of excellent studies, because of their outstanding qualities.
The ten contributions presented here come from the fields of history, psychology, sociology and literature. Some were written by well known professors, others, by young and promising scholars. A wide range of subjects is covered, varying from anti-Jewish legislation in Romania to Jewish Resistance in Cracow, from the psychology of murderous technocrats to consciousness of high-school students in Israel and, speculatively, the memory of the Holocaust for future generations.
