GER 260 - The Holocaust in Context: Postwar Holocaust Representation in Literature and Film This course seeks to understand the Holocaust in the context of German literature and film. Beginning with the representations of the Holocaust in film and literature, the course then moves to the past to examine the representations of German Jews and their lives prior to the Holocaust. Literary works will serve to launch discussions of the German Jewish experience leading up to and including the Shoah, focusing on works now considered to comprise the canon of Holocaust literature. We will investigate how the past is depicted in literary works and narrative strategies for representation of the Holocaust. We will explore how literature helps us understand a key period of the twentieth century and responses to it today. The focus of our work will be on German literature and film in translation.
