Seminar paper from the year 2008 in the subject English - Literature, Works, grade: 2,0, course: African American Women Writers, language: English, abstract: To introduce my term paper "Race and Violence in Ann Petry's The Witness" I want to start with the definitions of the three terms race, racism and violence mentioned in the title. Regarding to the expressions I want to say something about the U.S. history, and about the current situation in the United States of America, with reference to the African American people. The Oxford Advanced Learner's Dictionary explains race as follows: "one of the main groups that humans can be divided into according to their physical differences, for example the colour of their skin; a group of people who share the same language, history, culture, etc." Racism means "the unfair treatment of people who belong to a different race; violent behaviour towards them; the belief that some races of people are better than others" The history of racism in the United States of America goes back to 17th century and should have come to an end with the American Civil War (1861-1865) and the abolition of slavery (1865). Unfortunately, the abolition of slavery was not the end of the African American martyrdom. It was the beginning of prejudices, discrimination, violence and struggle. When we think of racism against African American people, we think of a long and torturous way African Americans had to go and still go nowadays.

What is the role of survivor testimony in Holocaust remembrance? Today such recollections are considered among the most compelling and important historical sources we have, but this has not always been true. In The Era of the Witness, a concise, rigorously argued, and provocative work of cultural and intellectual history, Annette Wieviorka seeks to answer this surpassingly complex question. She analyzes the conditions under which survivor testimonies have been produced, how they have been received over time, and how the testimonies shaped the construction of history and collective memory. Wieviorka discerns three successive phases in the evolution of the roles and images of the Holocaust witness. The first phase is marked by the testimony left by those who did not survive the Holocaust but managed nevertheless to record their experiences. The second, most important, phase is centered on the Eichmann trial, which for Wieviorka is the moment (1961–1962) when a broad cultural deafness to survivors' stories was replaced by the image of the witness as "bearer of history." The author follows the changing nature of the witness into a third phase, which she calls "the era of the witness." Especially concerned with the pedagogical and political uses to which survivor testimony has been put, Wieviorka examines factors that determine when and how survivor testimonies are incorporated into the larger narrative of the Holocaust, according it a privileged place in our understanding. By exploring the ways in which the Holocaust is remembered, The Era of the Witness also deepens our understanding of how testimony can help to define not only twentieth-century history but also more recent episodes of mass killing that are only now "becoming history."

Jennifer Jeffries is single and the innocent victim of a violent assault. She is forced to deal with her trauma in the company of strangers, since she was in London and not her Houston home when the attack occurred. In addition, she must testify in one of London's Crown Courts against the man who nearly killed her. Her inauspicious circumstances and the intense style of writing create a strong connection with the reader. Strong supporting characters enrich the narrative. No one expected Jenny to survive the physical and emotional trauma she experienced-not the doctors, not the London serial killer who chose her for his seventh victim, not the Scotland Yard detective who desperately needed her to testify against her attacker. Jenny is kidnapped and is a victim of violence. The threat to her life is present both before and after her attacker is convicted and continues to the end of the book. Suspense also plays a role in whether she will have recovered sufficiently from her trauma to testify against her attacker and later to participate in a romantic relationship with the Scotland Yard detective who handled her case. And no one expected this young, petite Texan to overcome her fears-not her witness protection team nor the tough ex-special-forces sergeant in charge of them. And no one expected her character and courage to blossom- not the defense barristers who sought to discredit her testimony and not even Jenny herself, who had to battle pain and panic to rediscover hope and love. This novel portrays the rebuilding of a traumatized life from victim to survivor to victor-each step an important shift in the struggle to regain personal power. Clues for real recovery are revealed from Jenny's journey through the 1998-99 British law enforcement and legal system and beyond. The first of a trilogy, this work of women's fiction contains the same psychological intensity as Anna Quindlen's Black and Blue. Ms. Quindlen's protagonist endures, but Ms. Kryske's triumphs. Healing and hope overcome fear and pain. The Witness breaks new ground by showing the enduring effects trauma can have on a life and the process victims must undergo to heal, while still being an entertaining and compelling read, and covers the steps toward healing from violence.
