What are the ethical responsibilities of the historian in an age of mass murder and hyper-reality? Realizing the philosophical impossibility of ever recovering "what really happened", scholar Edith Wyschogrod weighs the impact of modern archival methods, such as photographs, film, and the Internet, and creates a powerful new framework for the understanding of history and the ethical duties of the historian. 13 photos.
