Description - Auschwitz and After by Lawrence D. Kritzman

This study analyzes how the memory of Auschwitz and the collaboration continue to haunt the French. These critical evaluations are accompanied by essays on the "Jewish question" and the politics of race as they have been studied by writers, historians, philosophers and film-makers in post-war France. "Auschwitz and After" offers an extraordinary compendium of critics of French culture treating subjects as diverse as: the representation of the Holocaust and the politics of revisionism; anti-Semitism in contemporary France; the literature of Jews writing in French; the literature of the French writing on Jews; the post-Auschwitz philosophy of Blanchot, Derrida, Levinas and Lyotard; images of the occupation in the films of Ophuls, Chabrol, Truffaut and Malle; war memories and autobiographical writing; and the construction of Jewish identity in Sartre, Aron, Levi-Strauss and Finkielkraut.
