    The “limits” of adeuately and appropriately representing Nazism and the Final Solution are examined by the essays in this volume beginning with Saul Friedlander’s introduction The editor notes that the Holocaust is “an event which tests our traditional conceptual and representational categories an ‘event at the limits’” – it is an event that seems to exist beyond the realm of possibility; to write about such an event involves barriers not encountered by any other in history Friedlander postulates that our ability to adeuately represent the Holocaust is insufficient and yet boundless
