New and original research by genocide and Holocaust scholars!

This volume marks a series of significant anniversaries: 100 years since the beginning of the Armenian Genocide; 80 years since the Barmen Declaration; 75 years since the beginning of World War II; 70 years since the uprising at Auschwitz.

"...a compelling argument for the usability and relevance of genocide and Holocaust memories for present and future peacebuilding and ethical living.... This collection of essays does not only provide a rebuttal to claims about the ironies of atrocity memory, but also provides refreshing scholarship on why it matters to safeguard memories of genocides for the future. Scholars, professors, and students of genocides and the Holocaust will find Remembering for the Future a persuasive contribution for thinking about genocide memories for present and future usability."—International Journal on World Peace, review by Chigbo Arthur Anyaduba.

“...riveting first hand accounts and expertly researched displays of human actions, importantly deepening our awareness of what genocide is.”—Henry (Ben) Morgenthau, IV

“The Annual Scholars’ Conference on the Holocaust and the Churches leaves no challenge or question unaddressed and no stone unturned in its confrontation with the past and its efforts to help build a better world that will be able to stop and perhaps even prevent similar events from occurring.”—David Silberklang, Yad Vashem

“Its special focus on the Armenian Genocide is especially welcome.”—John T. Pawlikowski, OSM, Ph.D., Professor of Social Ethics, Director, Catholic-Jewish Studies Program, Catholic Theological Union, Chicago

“The scholarly essays in this book decisively confirm what had been already been evident, that perpetrators learn, directly or indirectly, from previous genociders.”—Paul Mojzes, Ph.D., Rosemont College, author of Balkan Genocides

“...constantly pushing the boundaries of the field and expanding the conversation about this history. The contributors to this volume carry that tradition forward, dealing with topics ranging from the Armenian genocide to contemporary antisemitism to Muslim-Jewish relations.”—Victoria J. Barnett, General Editor, Dietrich Bonhoeffer Works, English Edition

“An absolutely essential addition to community, college, and university library Genocide/Holocaust collections and supplemental reading lists”The Midwest Book Review
