This collection of essays explores life and culture, meaning and memory in the aftermath of the Holocaust. It takes up the question, "has the world learned anything?", discussing issues such as how artists, scholars and teachers have represented and transmitted experiences of the Holocaust.

From the Back Cover:

Distinguished literary scholar Geoffrey H. Hartman, himself forced to leave Germany at age nine, collects his essays, both scholarly and personal, that focus on the Holocaust. Hartman contends that although progress has been made, we are only beginning to understand the horrendous events of 1933 to 1945. The continuing struggle for meaning, consolation, closure, and the establishment of a collective memory against the natural tendency toward forgetfulness is a recurring theme. The many forms of response to the devastation - from historical research and survivors' testimony to the novels, films, and monuments that have appeared over the last fifty years - reflect and inform efforts to come to grips with the past, despite events (like those at Bitburg) that attempt to foreclose it. The stricture that poetry after Auschwitz is ""barbaric"" is countered by the increased sense of responsibility incumbent on the creators of these works.

About the Author:

GEOFFREY HARTMAN is a noted literary critic, Sterling Professor of English & Comparative Literature and Director of the Holocaust video testimony project at Yale. He left Germany as a child as part of the kindertransport.
