—German, Yiddish, Hebrew, French, Polish, Italian, as well as English — during and after the Holocaust. (All works will be read in English translation; there are no language requirements for the course.) We will seek, first, to understand what is meant when we refer to the genocide of European Jewry as the “Holocaust.” Among the questions to be considered are: How do writers and readers respond to trauma and survival? What are the connections between imaginative literature and historical events? How does this literature shape our contemporary understanding of exile, diaspora, home? What is the relationship between public and private memory? What difference does translation make in our understanding of these texts?

Requirements include active participation in class discussions, periodic short (1-2page) responses to the assigned writings, 2 papers of varying length, and a take-home final.
