Reviews

“The historiography of Britain’s relationship with the Holocaust is now an area of significant scholarly interest. Caroline Sharples and Olaf Jensen’s edited collection provides an up-to-date review of some of the central debates regarding Holocaust remembrance and representation. … the collection provides an important interdisciplinary study of how Britain has understood, represented and memorialized the Holocaust in both the past and present.” (Jennifer Reeve, European History Quarterly, Vol. 46 (2), 2016)
