“Rich in detail, each chapter provides a snapshot of the political situation and intellectual debates in Egypt, Syria, Lebanon, Palestine, Iraq, Turkey, and Morocco. For people unfamiliar with this part of the world, these chapters are full of surprises. For readers familiar with previous scholarship that emphasized the “ideological synthesis” of Arab nationalism, Nazism, Jew-hatred, and Islamic fundamentalism, this volume serves as a vital antidote to simplified understanding… What the editors promise [in their introduction], the volume delivers.” • Holocaust and Genocide Studies
“This outstanding collection of brilliant essays offers explorations of Arab, Turkish, and Jewish responses to Nazism and the Holocaust in the Middle East. Each concise essay presents complex historiographical debates in a way that is highly accessible to scholars, students, and the learned public.” • Marc David Baer, London School of Economics
