Synopses & Reviews

Please note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.

Publisher Comments:

This important and original book is the first sustained analysis of the unique ways in which oral testimony of survivors contributes to our understanding of the Holocaust. Langer argues that it is necessary to deromanticize the survival experience and that to burden it with accolades about the "indomitable human spirit" is to slight its painful complexity and ambivalence.

Synopsis:

A sustained analysis of the ways in which oral testimonies of survivors contribute to the understanding of the Holocaust. The book also aims to shed light on the forms and functions of memory as victims relive devastating experiences of pain, humiliation and loss.
