Holocaust Diaries as Life Stories

Research output: Book/ReportBook


Drawing on linguistics, philosophy, epistemology, cultural politics, life stories theory and more, Goldberg explores how these subjects function in Holocaust diaries and the paradox of narrating a process of “ceasing to exist as a human being” under the Nazis. How does the construction of human identity through narration occur in a situation of brutal, meaningless violence? Conclusions discuss “human” identity, “subject” and other issues.
