What began as a trickle of literary texts addressing the Holocaust in the years immediately following the close of World War II has grown into an enormous body of work, diverse in form, style, genre, narrative perspective and scope. We will consider a wide array of texts and authors who each bring a distinct voice to the effort to respond in a meaningful way to the atrocity that continues to defy the imagination. Drawing on literary works by survivors, the Second Generation, non-Jews, and Jews not personally affected by the Holocaust, we will explore a range of strategies, some direct and others metaphoric, crafted to produce a literature that is equal to the task of addressing Nazi Germany’s quest to destroy the Jews. Authors to be studied include: Primo Levi, Ida Fink, Tova Reich, Cynthia Ozick, Aryeh Lev Stollman, Nathan Englander, Aharon Appelfeld, Tadeusz Borowski, Dan Pagis, Paul Celan and Thane Rosenbaum.
