Written by a member of the French resistance who became an important literary figure in postwar France, this moving memoir of life and death in Auschwitz and the postwar experiences of women survivors has become a key text for Holocaust studies classes. This second edition includes an updated and expanded introduction and new bibliography by Holocaust scholar Lawrence L. Langer. “Delbo’s exquisite and unflinching account of life and death under Nazi atrocity grows fiercer and richer with time. The superb new introduction by Lawrence L. Langer illuminates the subtlety and complexity of Delbo’s meditation on memory, time, culpability, and survival, in the context of what Langer calls the ‘afterdeath’ of the Holocaust. Delbo’s powerful trilogy belongs on every bookshelf.”—Sara R. Horowitz, York University Winner of the 1995 American Literary Translators Association Award

This book addresses the personal and collective abysses that may open when, albeit many years after the Holocaust, but in the very country of the murderers, one examines the legacy of the National Socialist extermination of Jews. Jewish Lebenswelt in Germany entails involvement of survivors and their sons and daughters, born after the Shoah, with the non-Jewish German world of Nazi perpetrators, supporters, bystanders and their children. Love relationships probably represent the most intimate contact between former victims and perpetrators, or their supporters. This exploration of second-generation relationships in post-National-Socialist Germany is aimed at gaining deeper insights into what Theodor W. Adorno called the »culture after Auschwitz«. The true extent and significance of the chasm that did indeed emerge during the course of this endeavour only became apparent in retrospect. Therefore, an article about the »history« of working on »Love after Auschwitz« has been included.

God After Auschwitz

Author : Zachary Braiterman

The impact of technology-enhanced mass death in the twentieth century, argues Zachary Braiterman, has profoundly affected the future shape of religious thought. In his provocative book, the author shows how key Jewish theologians faced the memory of Auschwitz by rejecting traditional theodicy, abandoning any attempt to justify and vindicate the relationship between God and catastrophic suffering. The author terms this rejection "Antitheodicy," the refusal to accept that relationship. It finds voice in the writings of three particular theologians: Richard Rubenstein, Eliezer Berkovits, and Emil Fackenheim. This book is the first to bring postmodern philosophical and literary approaches into conversation with post-Holocaust Jewish thought. Drawing on the work of Mieke Bal, Harold Bloom, Jacques Derrida, Umberto Eco, Michel Foucault, and others, Braiterman assesses how Jewish intellectuals reinterpret Bible and Midrash to re-create religious thought for the age after Auschwitz. In this process, he provides a model for reconstructing Jewish life and philosophy in the wake of the Holocaust. His work contributes to the postmodern turn in contemporary Jewish studies and today's creative theology.

1942 wurde Lale Sokolov nach Auschwitz deportiert. Seine Aufgabe war es, Häftlingsnummern auf die Unterarme seiner Mitgefangenen zu tätowieren, jene Nummern, die später zu den eindringlichsten Mahnungen gegen das Vergessen gehören würden. Er nutzte seine besondere Rolle und kämpfte gegen die Unmenschlichkeit des Lagers, vielen rettete er das Leben. Dann, eines Tages, tätowierte er den Arm eines jungen Mädchens – und verliebte sich auf den ersten Blick in Gita. Eine Liebesgeschichte begann, an deren Ende das Unglaubliche wahr werden sollte: Sie überlebten beide. Eindringlich erzählt Heather Morris die bewegende, wahre Geschichte von Lale und Gita, die den Glauben an Mut, Liebe und Menschlichkeit nie verloren.

To this day Jewish thinkers struggle to articulate the appropriate response to the unprecedented catastrophe of the Holocaust. Here, Morgan offers the first comprehensive overview of Post-Holocaust Jewish theology, quoting extensively from and interpreting all of the significant American writings of the movement. Morgan's lucid analysis clarifies the background of the movement in the postwar period, its origins, its character, and its legacy for subsequent thinking, theological and otherwise. Ultimately, Morgan's primary purpose is to tell the story of the movement, to illuminate its real, deep point, and to demonstrate its continuing relevance today.

He then reviews the history of Christian responses to science's discoveries, including a summary of reactions from Christian scientists. He completes his analysis with a proposal for the development of a Christian understanding of creation."--BOOK JACKET.

Ein Kurzer Aufenthalt Auf Dem Weg Von Auschwitz

Zwölf Jahre alt war Göran Rosenberg, als sein Vater sich das Leben nahm. Nun, fünf Jahrzehnte später, zeichnet der Sohn das Leben des ihm beinah Unbekannten nach wie in einem literarischen Phantombild – erstellt aus Erinnerungen und so kargen wie bedeutsamen Spuren. Rosenberg wurde 1948 in der schwedischen Kleinstadt Södertälje geboren. Eine fast normale Kindheit – bis er langsam verstand, dass seine Eltern anders, jüdisch, waren, dass sie Auschwitz überlebt hatten, bevor sie eine neue Existenz aufbauten, die sein Vater nicht lange ertrug. Dieses hoffnungslos gerettete Leben versucht Rosenberg zu begreifen: Er vollzieht den Weg seines Vaters nach, besucht Gedächtnisorte und vergessene Leidensstationen, das ehemalige Ghetto von Lodz, das Arbeitslager der Firma Büssing bei Braunschweig, Auschwitz. «Ein kurzer Aufenthalt auf dem Weg von Auschwitz» ist ein Erinnerungsbuch, Recherche und große Literatur, die sich einer zer­brochenen Biographie und der Frage nach der Möglichkeit des Lebens überhaupt in einer sensiblen, fesselnden und hochpoe­tischen Sprache nähert. Ein wichtiges, dring­liches Buch, das uns nicht nur die Schrecken des zwanzigsten Jahrhunderts, sondern die menschliche Existenz selbst besser begreifen lässt.

The first multidisciplinary study of its kind, Breaking Crystal examines how members of the generation after the Holocaust in Israel and the United States confront through their own imaginations a traumatic event they have not directly experienced. Among the questions this groundbreaking work raises are: Whose memory is it? What will the collective memory of the Holocaust be in the twenty-first century, after the last survivors have given testimony? How in the aftermath of the Holocaust do we read and write literature and history? How is the memory inscribed in film and art? Is the appropriation of the Holocaust to political agendas a desecration of the six million Jews? What will the children of survivors pass on to the next generation?
