ENGH 207 - Literature of the Holocaust

4 credits
In this course, we will examine a range of writings—memoir, fiction, and philosophy, poetry and plays—as well as film and graphic novels, that emerge out of and reflect upon the Holocaust. We will explore the Holocaust from the perspectives of those who lived through these events—perpetrators, victims, and bystanders—and through readings of texts by and about those born in its aftermath, whose lives have nevertheless been shaped by it. Throughout, we will try to grasp how various writers and artists have struggled to come to terms with events that many regard as beyond all human comprehension.
