Christopher Browning writes about Raul Hilberg and his unique contribution to Holocaust research. Browning dwells on important stages in Raul Hilberg’s academic life, from his studies at Columbia University and writing his controversial work on the destruction of the European Jews, through his research work in the 1970s and 1980s, which enabled Hilberg to go back and update his original study. Browning highlights the book’s structure, the criticism that was leveled at it, and the change in Hilberg’s interpretation of the findings in each of the different versions. Hilberg’s work throughout the 1990s and the early twenty-first century is also reviewed in Browning’s observations about one of the most learned and influential scholars in the field of Holocaust research.
