The social history of the genocide, its representation in postwar culture, and new theoretical approaches stand at the forefront of current research in a range of disciplines.   Analyses at the most intimate scale—of the individual or of a particular locale— are juxtaposed with those that turn to       broader studies of the war or postwar order. Complementing these different scales are theoretical investigations that address individual agency, moral judgment, and the construction of meaning and memory in the study of the victims of the     Holocaust and in our understanding of society as a whole. Together they mark the contemporary scholarly landscape of    Holocaust studies, which includes history as well as film and literary studies, philosophy, and religious studies (among         other disciplines). Each of the volume's three sections contributes to understanding the Holocaust and postwar ramifications       of the genocide by focusing on: 1) the history of specific communities of both victims and perpetrators; 2) postwar cultural representations; and 3) new theoretical understandings of each. The essays in this           volume thus represent new interests in the field that contribute to building integrated histories of the Holocaust.
