In the Aftermath of the Holocaust By Geoffrey Hartman (179 Pages)Publisher: Palgrave Macmillan, 2002
In this series of interlinked essays, Geoffrey Hartman draws upon his pioneering interests in the collection of Holocaust survivor video testimony and his personal experience as a child of the Kindertransport to explore life and culture, meaning and memory in the aftermath of the Holocaust. Taking up the anguished question of many survivors, "has the world learned anything?", Hartman discusses issues of representation, ethics and pedagogy, the relations between first- and second-generation witnesses to the events, and the many different ways in which artists, scholars, and teachers have represented and transmitted these extreme experiences. How, he asks, do we convert our knowledge about the Holocaust into a thoughtful and potent understanding? Writing with his characteristic intelligence and grace, Hartman takes us from Bitburg to Schindler's List, from Vichy to battles over public memory, from the Yizkor or Memorial Books commemorating the destroyed communities to the poetry of Paul Celan. He also evokes in vivid detail his experience as a refugee in England and explains how as a writer on literature and culture he came gradually to focus on the Holocaust.
