Description


The authors covered in this collection are among the most incisive analysts and interpreters of the Holocaust experience; they are also arguably the finest writers their countries have produced, regarded as such by literary and social critics in their own as well as by those in other lands. Whatever literary techniques employed-realism, magical realism, stream of consciousness, or variations thereof-these writers, forced to confront head-on the issues of good and evil, of social and moral responsibility, of life and death, have produced a body of work that goes beyond the specifics of their own time and place. Their voices must continue to be heard as genocide and "ethnic cleansing" haunt a world which, despite its protestations and condemnations, seems as impotent to stop the massacres of innocents today as it was more than seventy years ago.
