    Why exactly does the Holocaust loom so large in our collective consciousness? To what political purposes has this memory been put? Filmed in the U.S., Europe and Israel, this controversial documentary charts the evolution of our idea of the Holocaust, from 1945 to the present, critically examines the international campaign for restitution, and ponders the relationship between the Holocaust and the contemporary politics of the Middle East. Featuring interviews with Dr. Henry Kissinger, Peter Novick, Norman Finkelstein, Gulie Ne'eman Arad, Elan Steinberg, and Elie Wiesel, among others, this video will challenge conventional historical viewpoints and stimulate debate over whether or not the lessons of the Holocaust have truly been learned.

    "Expressing a controversial viewpoint that needs to be discussed, this excellent production is recommended for college and large public libraries that have strong Holocaust holdings."
    Library Journal

    "...a brave and accomplished documentary...One of those programmes which messes with your head just when you think you've finally decided what you think about all the Big Issues in the world. Challenging doesn't even begin to cover it."
    The Guardian (London)

    "..provocative...courageous...Reflects a genuine debate raging within (particularly American) Jewry. It also left our minds fizzing with thoughts and counter-thoughts, ideas and objections."
    The Daily Telegraph (London)
