Saul Friedländler`s two-volume representation of »The Third Reich and the Jews«, published last year, was a prize-winning historical masterpiece. The volume we are concerned with here documents his public lectures and discussions as the first guest professor at the Jena Center for the History of the 20th Century. It focuses on questions concerning the sources, methods and perspectives of holocaust research. Informative discussions with colleagues and young researchers give additional new insight into the personal biography of Saul Friedländer, who survived the holocaust by hiding in a monastic school in France.
