Representing the Holocaust

In Honour of Bryan Burns

Edited by: Vice, Sue

This collection of essays by leading and new British scholars focuses on central issues in Holocaust studies. The topics discussed here include the history and work of the Research Centre for German and Austrian Exile Studies in London; controversies over Holocaust Museums, Holocaust Remembrance Day, and 'the Holocaust industry'; a biography of the Scottish-Jewish playwright C.P. Taylor, whose best-known play, Good, is about Nazism; the representation of the Holocaust in diary, testimony, film and poetry; Primo Levi's work; and the scandal of Binjamin Wilkomirski's inauthentic testimony Fragments.
