Norman Geras on Judt on Holocaust Memory

A few weeks ago I recommended an article by Tony Judt on problems with the way the Shoah is remembered. I had my reservations about the article, but mostly felt it to be a worthwhile read.

Well, yesterday Norman Geras posted his reflections upon reading the same Judt article, and they're withering. But also very well reasoned and formulated. I stand rebuked, and also am green with envy for the way he thought through the implications and carefully refutes them.
