The Holocaust Historiography Project

Rewriting History

“The Holocaust was [once] regarded as a side story of the much larger story of World War II. Now one thinks of World War II as a background story and the Holocaust as a foreground story.”

Michael Berenbaum, Project Director of the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum and Georgetown University theology professor. Quoted in The Washington Times, Jan. 10, 1991.
