Images from the Holocaust: A Literature Anthology / Edition 1

Other Format (Print)
Not Available on BN.com
 

Overview

Selecting literature to convey the essence of the Holocaust is difficult because there was no standard Holocaust experience. Each person who experienced the Holocaust - whether victim, witness, resuer, or descendant - has a unique story to tell.

Selections for this anthology include fiction (both short stories and excepts from novels), poetry, historical accounts, biographical sketches, and drama. Each entry is preceded by a brief biographical note about the author and an introduction. In addition, each chapter opens with material that provides historical context for the selections that follow.
