    Is it possible, indeed, is it legitimate to write about the Shoah when one is born after the war, when one hasn't experienced the horrors of concentration camps, and when survivors themselves are questioning the representability of the genocide? Which idioms can one use, what language can one invent in order to speak of this tragic event when it is necessary to do so, because it defines one's Jewish identity? By its density and its specificity, Patrick Modiano's work answers these difficult questions. In a confrontation with collective history, which is at once strange and familiar to them, his narrators explore writing in order to find the right way to define the parametres and, more significantly, the limits of their identity. Their integrity allows them to transform their weaknesses into strengths: by accepting the distance between himself, the Shoah, and collective history, Modiano situates himself with respect to one of the most important events of the twentieth century.
