This chapter considers the arguments raised by historians to justify their call for the Holocaust to be sequestered from the study of Jewish history. The grounds have been largely methodological, but practical, ethical, and ideological considerations have been raised as well. While the arguments may appear formidable, in the final analysis their ability to persuade lies more in their rhetorical force than in empirical precision or compelling logic. Upon examination it turns out that the exaggerated attention allegedly given to the Holocaust by scholars and teachers of Jewish history is an exaggeration itself.
