Daniel Jonah Goldhagen (born 1959) is an American author and former Associate Professor of Political Science and Social Studies at Harvard University.

Goldhagen reached international attention and broad criticism as the author of two controversial books about the Holocaust, Hitler's Willing Executioners (1996) and A Moral Reckoning (2002).

He is also the author of 2009's Worse Than War, which examines the phenomenon of genocide. His wife is Sarah Williams Goldhagen, an architectural historian, and critic for The New Republic magazine.

In the book, Goldhagen acknowledges that individual bishops and priests hid and saved a large number of Jews, yet he asserts that others promoted or accepted anti-Semitism before and during the war, and some played a direct role in the persecution of Jews in Europe during the time of the Nazis.

The book has been criticized as being a "misuse of the Holocaust to advance [his] anti-Catholic agenda", and as being poor scholarship.

Daniel Jonah Goldhagen was born in Boston, Massachusetts, U. Goldhagen is the son of retired Harvard professor Erich Goldhagen, a Holocaust survivor who lived in a Romanian–Jewish ghetto in Czernowitz, now in Ukraine.

He credits his father as a "model of intellectual sobriety and probity".

Some historians have characterized its reception as an extension of the Historikerstreit, the German historiographical debate of the 1980s that sought to explain Nazi history.

The book was a "publishing phenomenon", achieving fame in both the United States and Germany, despite its "mostly scathing" reception among historians, who were unusually vocal in condemning it as ahistorical and, in the words of Holocaust historian Raul Hilberg, "totally wrong about everything" and "worthless".

    I argue that despite Goldhagen's efforts to restore the conscious human subject to the perpetration of the Holocaust, the logic of his thesis in fact serves largely to absolve German subjects of culpability for an act of barbarism he regards as at least latent in an ‘exceptional’ and ‘eliminationist’ anti-Semitism that predates the rise.…
