Editorial Reviews

Review

“[A] groundbreaking work . . . Dorland’s thesis is that the collective French consciousness, which included the medical practitioners who treated concentration camp survivors, was and still is pervasively tainted by anti-Semitism and an inability to come to terms with the collaboration of so many of their countrymen under the Vichy regime.”—Jerusalem Post


“The text is well written, scholarly, and authoritative. The book goes beyond the survivor to include the impact on families as well. Anyone interested in the psychological aspects of trauma will find this volume a worthwhile read.”—Jewish Book World


“[A]n engaging and unique exploration of how French doctors analyzed the impact of the concentration camps on Holocaust survivors. The author devoted ten years to writing this work, and the result is a nuanced combination of historical, cultural, political, sociological, and psychological approaches to the study of the Holocaust.” —Holocaust and Genocide Studies

Review

“Michael Dorland has written an important and, in many ways, a strikingly original work that definitely ranks as superior scholarship. By choosing to examine how the figure of the Holocaust survivor has been studied, he has succeeded in uncovering new material and weaving this together with a critical review of a vast range of scholarship into a readable, yet subtle, and often eloquent, narrative.” (Toby Gelfand, Ph.D., Jason A. Hannah Professor of the History of Medicine, University of Ottawa)

“Michael Dorland’s Cadaverland is the most important historical study dealing with the medical ramifications of the Holocaust. Focusing on the psychiatric and psychological literature dealing with the impact of the Shoah for the survivors and for their families, Dorland sketches the difficult, contradictory, often self-destructive struggle of psychological medicine with the horrors of the Shoah. Brilliantly written and ranging well beyond the confines of post-war France, this is a book that health care practitioners as well as all those dealing with trauma and its historical aftermath MUST read.” (Sander L. Gilman, Director, Program in Psychoanalysis, Emory University)
