Summary"What is the role of survivor testimony in Holocaust remembrance? In The Era of the Witness, a concise, rigorously argued, and provocative work of cultural and intellectual history, Annette Wieviorka seeks to answer this surpassingly complex question and deepens our understanding of how testimony can help to define not only twentieth-century history but also more recent episodes of mass killing that are only now 'becoming history.'" —Back cover
