Book Description

January 18, 2007 0199206384 978-0199206384
Waxman examines the full history of Holocaust testimony, from the very first chroniclers confined to Nazi-enforced ghettos, to today's survivors writing as part of collective memory. Showing how dramatically the conditions and motivations for bearing witness have changed, she reveals the multiplicity of Holocaust experience and how different contexts have given rise to very different modes of remembering.

Editorial Reviews


Writing the Holocaust represents an important contribution to the field of Holocaust studies. Andrea Reiter, Mortality ...thought-provoking and an inspiration for further work in this area in the future. Journal of Jewish Studies a wonderful introduction to Holocaust literature, especially early Holocaust literature; and it is an informed and intelligent discussion, for even the most advanced students of the Holocaust, of the role of literature in shaping our understanding of the Shoah, and understanding the lives and destinies of those victims who did and did not survive (survivors were also victims). Michael Berenbaum, Journal of Genocide Research
