This introductory chapter addresses the question of whether the way in which Jewish history is conceptualized, interpreted, and represented has changed at the beginning of the twenty-first century. It shows that not only has the Holocaust not generated a substantial change of direction in the study of Jewish history sixty years after its conclusion; not only has Jewish history remained virtually the sole area of the humanities which has not sensed in the Holocaust a formidable test of its disciplinary foundations; but that historians of the Jews have raised the demand to insulate themselves from the Holocaust's influence to the level of a vital principle from which deviation is to be condemned.
