Updated: August, 2016

The Holocaust has generated vast and diverse responses. This bibliography contains well-established works by renowned scholars, some lesser-known items, and an additional focus on women. Texts written specifically by or about women are marked with *. For readers who are new to the subject of the Holocaust, my recommendations carry the # sign. If the tile of a work is not self-explanatory, am providing short annotations.

There are separate bibliographies for Writing on Literary and Artistic Responses to the HolocaustHolocaust Memoirs, Testimonies, and Histories; and for Anti-Semitism.

For a list of Holocaust novels, stories, plays, and poems, see Literary Responses to the Holocaust.
