Since the liberation of the Nazi concentration camps and recognition of the Holocaust as a watershed event of the twentieth century, if not in Western Civilization itself, the capacity of art to represent this event adequately has been questioned. Contributors provide case studies that include a broad spectrum of artists from North America, Europe and Israel, and examine some of the dominant themes of their work.

"Probing the Limits of the Politics of Representation," Jeremy Varon
"After Auschwitz: Art and the Holocaust Six Decades Later," Monica Bohm-Duchen
"Jewish Artists in New York: The 1940s," Matthew Baigell
"From the Sublime to the Abject: Art and the Holocaust Six Decades Later," Andrew Weinstein
"R.B. Kitaj's 'Good Bad' Diasporism and the Body in American Jewish Postmodern Art," Sander Gilman
"Bak's Variations on a Theme by Bak," Lawrence Langer
"Toward a Post-Holocaust Theology in Art: The Search for the Absent and Present God," Stephen Feinstein
"How to Remember," Nancy Weston
