Summary"'The Holocaust,' writes the author, 'is the greatest tragedy for Christians since the crucifixion. In the first instance, Jesus died; in the latter, Christianity may be said to have died. In the case of Christ, the Christian believes in a resurrection. Will there be, can there be a resurrection for Christianity?' Cargas's reflections, together with sixty-one startling photographs, are a moving response to this question." —Back cover
