I was shocked to read in the news today that writer David Cesarani has died at the age of 58. Strangely, the cause of death was not given.
This quote is from the news article:
David Cesarani, the English historian who specialised in Jewish history and the Holocaust, has died at the age of 58.
Mr Cesarani, who had contributed to the JC [Jewish Chronicle] many times, was considered a pioneer in Holocaust education.
He wrote and edited over a dozen books including After Eichmann: Collective Memory and the Holocaust since 1961, The Final Solution: Origins and Implementation, Justice Delayed: How Britain became a refuge for Nazi war criminals and The Making of Modern Anglo-Jewry.
I have read some of his writing and I quoted him on my website:
I also mentioned him in this blog post:
My impression is that he was a fairly honest Holocaust writer, otherwise I would not have quoted him.
