Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a comprehensive anthology of holocaust writings from both those who suffered and those who perpetrated this obscene atrocity.

There is a wide range of writings, from diary entries, biographical accounts, legal depositions, poetry, and a play, as well as a (very) small number of sketches. The work is largely of high quality and offers a range of viewpoints, but I was disappointed in that it was not all 'art' in what I consider the accepted sense of the word i.e. fiction, description, poetry, drawings/paintings - I don't consider depositions and diaries as 'art' in this sense.

It is a useful addition to any library of holocaust literature though, and features work by less well-known writers of great merit e.g. Charlotte Delbo and Paul Celan. My complaint is that there is very little in the way of pictorial art, even though there are many powerful holocaust artists, such as Felix Nussbaum and David Oliere whose paintings would have been a very useful addition, and that not everything (as I have said) is 'art' in the sense of the word that most of us think of.
