Develops a post‐Holocaust reading of John Dominic Crossan's book Raid on the Articule, published in 1976. Oldenhage attends to the ways in which allusive references to the Holocaust continue to appear in Crossan's discussion and offer an uncanny subtext to his comparison of the parables of Jesus and twentieth‐century literature. Oldenhage argues that Crossan's gestures to Holocaust atrocity together with his perpetuation of anti‐Judaism are typical of the vague nature of Holocaust memory in American culture in the mid‐1970s. The chapter draws from Peter Novick's and Jeffrey Shandler's works on American Holocaust memory.

Keywords:   Holocaust memory, uncanny, parables of Jesus, twentieth‐century literature, anti‐Judaism, John Dominic Crossan
