This article exegetes Karl Barth's doctrine of radical evil - das Nichtige - as set out in his CD III/3. The author argues that while the Barthian doctrine contains important insights into the nature and reality of evil, it is too triumphalistic in its rejection of the power of das Nichtige and, in consequence, fails to grant adequate significance to the theological impact of the Holocaust
