Jelena Subotic, a professor at Georgia State University, has written a fine, compelling and angry book. In Yellow Star, Red Star, she argues that Holocaust history in post-Communist countries has been ignored, subverted, adapted, adopted and misused and, in the two Balkan countries, used as a prop for creating post-Yugoslav national identities.--Jovan Byford, Open University, author of Denial and Repression of Antisemitism "Financial Times"
The complicated politics of memory and commemoration regarding the Holocaust in post-communist Eastern Europe is the subject of Suboti's thoughtful analysis... Disturbing in its implications, this well-written and reasoned work is required reading for those studying history and memory.--R.K. Byczkiewicz, Central Connecticut State University "Choice"
Yellow Star, Red Star approaches Holocaust studies from a post-Communist perspective and is an important contribution to the historical canon.--R.K. Byczkiewicz, Central Connecticut State University "Foreword"
