Item description for Beyond Auschwitz: Post-Holocaust Jewish Thought in America by Michael L. Morgan...

Overview
Description To this day Jewish thinkers struggle to articulate the appropriate response to the unprecedented catastrophe of the Holocaust. Here, Morgan offers the first comprehensive overview of Post-Holocaust Jewish theology, quoting extensively from and interpreting all of the significant American writings of the movement. Morgan's lucid analysis clarifies the background of the movement in the postwar period, its origins, its character, and its legacy for subsequent thinking, theological and otherwise. Ultimately, Morgan's primary purpose is to tell the story of the movement, to illuminate its real, deep point, and to demonstrate its continuing relevance today.

Reviews - What do customers think about Beyond Auschwitz: Post-Holocaust Jewish Thought in America?

A thoughtful work on a most painful subject  Apr 1, 2005
This work explores the literary, historical and primarily theological thought that came into being in post- war America in response to the Shoah. It makes in depth exploration of the work of a number of thinkers : Eliezer Berkovits, Irving ( Yitz)Greenberg, Emil Fackenheim, Richard Rubinstein. It also considers the writing of Elie Wiesel, Hannah Arendt on the Shoah. This is so far as I know the most significant work on this subject.
It is a work which in my opinion has answers which are themselves questions, about a subject which will always be bound up for any thinking person, and especially any Jew with tremendous pain and questioning.
Michael Morgan has done an outstanding job in editing and introducing the work.
I do have one objection. No work should be titled 'Beyond Auschwitz' There is no ' beyond ' Auschwitz. Auschwitz for those who were tortured and murdered there has no beyond. And for their survivors , and that is all of us, there is also no ' beyond'
