Holocaust books?

With Holocaust Memorial Day fast approaching (January 27), Bryan Cheyette ponders on whether there is too much focus on the Holocaust. He asks this question as the chair of the Jewish Quarterly/Wingate Prize judges with 4 out of 5 books on the short-list described as “Holocaust Books” by one newspaper. What is meant by “Holocaust Book”? Is this continued focus on victimhood healthy? What about other genocides and other victims? These questions and more are raised in Prof. Cheyette’s new blog.
