Warum gehen manche Geschehnisse in die Geschichte einer Nation ein? Warum werden andere vergessen oder gar unterdrückt? Und wie und warum kommen diese wieder zum Vorschein? Susanne C. Knittel analysiert verdrängte Aspekte des Zweiten Weltkrieges und des Holocausts in den Erinnerungskulturen Deutschlands und Italiens nach 1945. Diese tauchen beharrlich auf und stören den dominanten Erinnerungsdiskurs, dessen Gedenkrituale und etablierte Vorstellungen: die NS-»Euthanasie« einerseits und die Verbrechen des italienischen Faschismus sowie die Kollaboration mit den deutschen Besatzern andererseits. Durch eine vergleichende Betrachtung von Gedenkstätten sowie künstlerischen und literarischen Darstellungen, die diesen Verbrechen und ihren Opfern gewidmet sind, entsteht ein zwiespältiges Porträt der Holocausterinnerung in Europa.

A comprehensive survey of the most important writing to come out of the Holocaust. Writing in Witness is a broad survey of the most important writing about the Holocaust produced by eyewitnesses at the time and soon after. Whether they intended to spark resistance and undermine Nazi authority, to comfort family and community, to beseech God, or to leave a memorial record for posterity, the writers reflect on the power and limitations of the written word in the face of events often thought to be beyond representation. The diaries, journals, letters, poems, and other works were created across a geography reaching from the Baltics to the Balkans, from the Atlantic coast to the heart of the Soviet Union, and in a wide array of original languages. Along with the readings, Eric J. Sundquist’s introductions provide a comprehensive account of the Holocaust as a historical event. Including works by prominent authors such as Primo Levi and Elie Wiesel as well as those little known or anonymous, Writing in Witness provides, in vital and memorable examples, a wide-ranging account of the Holocaust by those who felt the imperative to give written testimony. “Written in every European language, in every conceivable manner, and from every point on the Holocaust compass—prisons, ghettos, transports, concentration and labor camps, killing fields, bunkers, makeshift shelters, camps for displaced persons—these diary entries, letters, testimonies, eyewitness accounts, poems, stories, sermons, and inscriptions demand that they be heard. Written by Jewish men, women, and children; by Christian bystanders; and yes, even by two German perpetrators, they depict the living nightmare as it unfolds. Six nightmare years and their aftermath are rendered in a language that defies the limits of language; an inescapable present that eclipses the past and cries out to an unattainable future. In the beginning was the Holocaust, and this is its story as told by its original responders.” — David G. Roskies, author of Holocaust Literature: A History and Guide “Writing in Witness is a devastatingly and deeply honest work of testimony by those whose worlds were shattered by the catastrophic rupture of the Holocaust. It is also, and primarily, a testament to the strength and courage of those who experienced the atrocities of Nazism and who felt compelled to write about those events in clear, unsparing language. Eric Sundquist, editor of this important collection, provides a sensitive selection of primary texts by men and women who witnessed the machinery and implementation of genocide. In his thoughtful and knowledgeable introduction, Sundquist establishes the framework for the ethical engagement of reader and eyewitness in the calculation of enormous loss. The various genres of witnessing included in this collection—diaries, poems, memoirs, letters, records—evoke in their clarity ancient forms of lamentation and Midrash, giving voice to memory. With judiciously interpretive preliminary material introducing each section, Sundquist lets the witnesses speak for themselves. No course on Holocaust literature or history should be without this anthology.” — Victoria Aarons, editor of Third-Generation Holocaust Narratives: Memory in Memoir and Fiction “This wide-ranging and affecting collection of firsthand accounts of the Holocaust, each expertly chosen and deftly introduced and contextualized, will be ideal for teaching purposes and indispensable to anyone intent on recovering a sense of what the horror felt like. Eric Sundquist has assembled an extraordinarily illuminating and powerful book.” — Peter Hayes, Theodore Zev Weiss Holocaust Educational Foundation Professor Emeritus, Northwestern University “Writing in Witness is a rich assortment of written accounts of diverse aspects of the experience of the Holocaust that are skillfully chosen and masterfully introduced and contextualized. What emerges from an overarching reading of these collective texts is a sense of how the actors who experienced or witnessed the events of the Holocaust registered them in language and through the sometimes immediate, sometimes reflective process of writing.” — Erin McGlothlin, author of Second-Generation Holocaust Literature: Legacies of Survival and Perpetration

Wir haben uns daran gewöhnt, in den menschengemachten Katastrophen der Moderne ein blutiges Schlachtfeld zu sehen, das wir »bewältigen« müssen. Durch die Vergegenwärtigung der Geschichte setzen wir uns jedoch nicht bloß dem Trauma des Früheren aus, wir befragen unsere Gegenwart zugleich radikal auf ihre Sinnhaftigkeit. Die Vergangenheit ist damit immer schon doppelter Natur: Als unerträgliche Last eröffnet sie zugleich einen Möglichkeitsraum der Veränderung – ihre »Zukünftigkeit« ist die Potentialität der Geschichte, Vorschein des Besseren und Maßstab unseres Handelns im Hier und Jetzt. In Auseinandersetzung mit den derzeit bestimmenden Debatten der Philosophie und Kulturkritik wie mit den wichtigsten Autoren der zeitgenössischen Literatur aus den USA, Israel und Deutschland entwirft Amir Eshel in »Zukünftigkeit« eine neue Ethik der Geschichts- und Literaturbetrachtung. Ihr Fluchtpunkt ist eine neue post-utopische Humanität im Eingedenken des Vergangenen.

"What does it mean to read, and to teach, Jewish American and Holocaust literatures in the early decades of the twenty-first century? New directions and new forms of expression have emerged, both in the invention of narratives and in the methodologies and discursive approaches taken toward these texts. The premise of this book is that despite moving further away in time, the Holocaust continues to shape and inform contemporary Jewish American writing. Divided into analytical and pedagogical sections, the chapters present a range of possibilities for thinking about these literatures. Contributors address such genres as biography, the graphic novel, alternate history, midrash, poetry, and third-generation and hidden-child Holocaust narratives. Both canonical and contemporary authors are covered, including Michael Chabon, Nathan Englander, Anne Frank, Dara Horn, Joe Kupert, Philip Roth, and William Styron"--

What is the difference between writing a novel about the Holocaust and fabricating a memoir? Do narratives about the Holocaust have a special obligation to be 'truthful'--that is, faithful to the facts of history? Or is it okay to lie in such works? In her provocative study A Thousand Darknesses, Ruth Franklin investigates these questions as they arise in the most significant works of Holocaust fiction, from Tadeusz Borowski's Auschwitz stories to Jonathan Safran Foer's postmodernist family history. Franklin argues that the memory-obsessed culture of the last few decades has led us to mistakenly focus on testimony as the only valid form of Holocaust writing. As even the most canonical texts have come under scrutiny for their fidelity to the facts, we have lost sight of the essential role that imagination plays in the creation of any literary work, including the memoir. Taking a fresh look at memoirs by Elie Wiesel and Primo Levi, and examining novels by writers such as Piotr Rawicz, Jerzy Kosinski, W.G. Sebald, and Wolfgang Koeppen, Franklin makes a persuasive case for literature as an equally vital vehicle for understanding the Holocaust (and for memoir as an equally ambiguous form). The result is a study of immense depth and range that offers a lucid view of an often cloudy field.

Ein bewegendes Familienepos und die Geschichte einer großen Liebe Die unsichtbare Brücke erzählt die ergreifende Geschichte der ungarisch-jüdischen Familie Lévi vor dem Hintergrund des Zweiten Weltkriegs. Paris und Budapest sind die Schauplätze dieses mitreißenden, lang erwarteten ersten Romans von Julie Orringer, in dessen Zentrum eine außergewöhnliche, immer wieder gefährdete Liebe steht.Budapest 1937. Voller Hoffnung besteigt der junge Andras Lévi den Zug nach Paris, um dort Architektur zu studieren – und entdeckt eine Stadt der Theater und der Kunst, der Studentenpartys und politischen Revolten. Als er die neun Jahre ältere Claire Morgenstern kennenlernt, beginnt eine leidenschaftliche Amour fou, die überschattet wird von einem dunklen Geheimnis aus der Vergangenheit der Ballettlehrerin. Es ist der Beginn einer großen, immer wieder Prüfungen unterworfenen Liebe. Auch Tibor und Mátyás, Andras’ Brüder, versuchen in dieser bedrohten Zeit ihr Glück zu finden. Als der Krieg die Brüder Lévi in Budapest zusammenführt, ist das keine Heimkehr, sondern der Beginn einer Odyssee mit ungewissem Ende: Ein Kampf ums Überleben beginnt – gegen Hunger, Verfolgung und einen Schatten aus Claires früherem Leben, der trotz aller Bemühungen unüberwindbar zu sein scheint.In großartigen Bildern lässt Julie Orringer eine untergegangene Welt wiederauferstehen, schildert die prächtige Architektur und glanzvolle Bühnenkultur der beiden Metropolen vor Kriegsbeginn und führt uns mitten hinein in den Horror des Zweiten Weltkriegs, der trotz aller Brutalität die Bande zwischen Claire und Andras und seiner Familie nicht zerreißen kann.
