More About A Moral Reckoning by Daniel Jonah Goldhagen
 
 
 
Overview
With his first book, Hitler's Willing Executioners, Daniel Jonah Goldhagen dramatically revised our understanding of the role ordinary Germans played in the Holocaust. Now he brings his formidable powers of research and argument to bear on the Catholic Church and its complicity in the destruction of European Jewry. What emerges is a work that goes far beyond the familiar inquiries--most of which focus solely on Pope Pius XII--to address an entire history of hatred and persecution that culminated, in some cases, in an active participation in mass-murder.
More than a chronicle, A Moral Reckoning is also an assessment of culpability and a bold attempt at defining what actions the Church must take to repair the harm it did to Jews--and to repair itself. Impressive in its scholarship, rigorous in its ethical focus, the result is a book of lasting importance.
