Description

This volume collects Langer's most provocative and poignant essays on the Holocaust. Examining themes such as the importance of memory and the impossibility of describing suffering, the book touches upon the experience of the ghetto and the camp, survivors and victims, those who have given eyewitness testimony and those who have created fictions or films. The result is a moving, eloquently written introduction to Langer's unflinching vision of a tragedy offering no consolation.
