Schermata 2018-03-02 alle 19.06.56.pngHolocaust History and the Readings of Ka-Tzetnik provides the first extensive exploration of the reception of Ka-Tzetnik’s work and the role that his books have played in the larger discussion of the Holocaust and its memorialization around the world. Including contributions from an international and interdisciplinary group of experienced scholars, the book examines the literary merits, historical context and public resonance of Ka-Tzetnik’s stories. It also places his novels in the context of post-WWII debates about how the memories and testimonies of the victims of the Holocaust can be represented and made publicly accessible through literature. There is also detailed coverage of key topics, like Holocaust memory and sexual violence in the concentration camps, and thorough historical analysis of key works like House of Dolls included throughout. This is an important study for all scholars and students with an interest in the Holocaust and Holocaust literature.

Holocaust History and the Readings of Ka-Tzetnik, a cura di Annette F. Timm, Bloomsbury 2018. Nel volume c’è il mio saggio The Eroticization of Witnessing: The Twofold Legacy of Ka-Tzetnik (pp. 139-152)
