The Challenge of “Multiculturalism” in How Americans View the Past and the Future

Of all the ways in which a nation defines itself, few are more important than what it teaches its children about itself.

The Nuremberg Trials and the Holocaust

A common response to expressions of skepticism about the Holocaust story is to say something like “What about Nuremberg?
