Survivor Testimonies and Historical Objectivity: Polish Historiography since
Neighbors " In the introduction to his Neighbors, Jan Gross argued for centrality of Jewish accounts from the Holocaust as reliable sources for reconstructing the tragicpast: Jewish testimonies about the Shoah have been deliberately written downin order to provide an exact and comprehensive account of the catastrophe… We should read in these efforts an intuition that one could effectivelyoppose, indeed frustrate, the Nazis’ plan of annihilation of the Jews if onlya record of the Nazis’ evil deeds was preserved."
Polish Historiography of theHolocaust—Between Silence and Public Debate. "In the introductory remarks to his essay on the Jewish historiography of theHolocaust of Polish Jewry, Shlomo Netzer states:
The rewriting of history, which is one of the outstanding characteristics of historiogra-phy, reflects the viewpoint of the contemporary generation as it looks at the past...Furthermore, if historiography is fashioned by an up-to-date, after-the-event perspec-tive, and research both adds to what is known and changes it, then these rules certainlyare valid for the historiography of the Holocaust. The events of the period are close toour generation and have not yet been subjected to the filter of too many historians.
Indeed, contemporary Holocaust scholarship in Poland confirms Netzer’sobservation."

The Holocaust. Voices of Scholars (ed.). Ths book was published thanks to generous support from the Faculty of International and Political Studies and the Institute of European Studies of the Jagiellonian University, and the Auschwitz-Birkenau State Museum. Foreword by Piotr M. A. Cywiński, Introduction by Jolanta Ambrosewicz-Jacobs. Cracow 2009. "The book presents the reflections of these scholars and public figures whose work involves the subject of the Holocaust. We asked them to write about difficulties they have faced, and we posed several questions to them: Do the analytical tools of the scholar, the researcher, the philosopher, the sociologist, the artist, prove weak or ineffective in dealing with the Holocaust? More than sixty years after the liberation of Auschwitz, are we intellectually and emotionally baffled by the genocide the Nazis committed there? If so, what are the paths taken to overcome this? How and why continue work on this most perplexing subject?".
