Imagery from Genesis in Holocaust memoirs : a critical study / Deborah Lee Prescott.

Publication | Library Call Number: D804.348 .P74 2010

"In the life stories of Holocaust survivors, biblical imagery can be invoked to explicate the unexplainable, to make real the unreal. This text examines the role of Genesis in the autobiographies of survivors. Three main concerns converge: the literary nature of Biblical allusion, the contextual history of the Holocaust, and Midrashic considerations that arise from biblical reference"--Provided by publisher.
