"As an authority on the meaning of the Holocaust for Americans, Hilene Flanzbaum is an exemplary figure. But, perhaps even more important, she also has an absolutely clear-headed and sometimes refreshingly skeptical view of the uses to which the Holocaust has been put in American life and on its relation to Jewish American identity. Reading her or hearing her speak on theses topics is always a challenging and enlivening experience.”

Walter Benn Michaels
Professor of English
University of Illinois at Chicago
