“Cowan and Maitles have successfully shed light on a number of important topics, including controversial issues, in Holocaust education today.”
“We highly recommend this book for all teachers of Holocaust Education.”
“It is first and foremost a practical book, full of advice, suggestions, provocations and a wealth of background information, and pointers to further study and reading. But it also gives a closely argued analysis of the nature of the Holocaust, and why it is so important that young people continue to study it, react to it, learn from it – it is a work of theory that critically informs our ideas of the purposes of education.”
