The Holocaust Is Over; We Must Rise from Its Ashes
Modern-day Israel, and the Jewish community, is strongly influenced by the memory and horrors of Hitler and the Holocaust. Burg argues that the Jewish nation has been traumatized and has lost the ability to trust itself, its neighbours or the world around it. He shows that this is one of the causes for the growing nationalism and violence that are plaguing Israeli society and reverberating through Jewish communities worldwide.
Burg uses his own family history - his parents were Holocaust survivors - to inform his innovative views on what the Jewish people need to do to move on and eventually live in peace with their Arab neighbours and feel comfortable in the world at large. Thought-provoking, compelling, and original, this book is bound to spark a heated debate around the world.
