J.D. Salinger and the Nazis / Eberhard Alsen

Publication | Library Call Number: PS3537.A426 Z537 2018
Book cover

Salinger grew up in an American Jewish family and became a Holocaust witness during the war. But in his writings he never mentions the Holocaust and makes only a one-sentence reference to the Buchenwald concentration camp. This book argues that there are three reasons for Salinger's failure to express any outrage about the Nazis' program to exterminate the entire Jewish population of Europe.
