Mesure de nos jours
Et toi, comment as-tu fait ? pourrait être le titre de ce troisième volume de Auschwitz et après. Comment as-tu fait en revenant ? Comment ont-ils fait, les rescapés des camps, pour se remettre à vivre, pour reprendre la vie dans ses plis ? C’est la question qu’on se pose, qu’on n’ose pas leur poser. Avec beaucoup d’autres questions. Car si l’on peut comprendre comment tant de déportés sont morts là-bas, on ne comprend pas, ni comment quelques-uns ont survécu, ni surtout comment ces survivants ont pu redevenir des vivants. Dans Mesure de nos jours, Charlotte Delbo essaie de répondre, pour elle-même et pour d’autres, hommes et femmes, à qui elle prête sa voix. Auschwitz et après, aux Éditions de Minuit : I. Aucun de nous ne reviendra (1970), II. Une connaissance inutile (1970), III. Mesure de nos jours (1971).

The Memory of Pain
In this book, Camila Loew analyzes four womenOCOs testimonial literary writings on the Holocaust to examine and question some of the tenets of the fields of Holocaust studies, gender studies, and testimony. Through a close reading of the works of Charlotte Delbo, Margarete Buber-Neumann, Ruth Klger, and Marguerite Duras, Loew foregrounds these authorsOCO search for a written form to engage with their experiences of the extreme. Although each chapter contains its individual focus and features, the book possesses a unity in intention, concerns, and consequences. In the theoretical introduction that unites the four chapters, Loew eschews essentialism and revises the emergence of the field of Women and Holocaust studies from the early 1980s on, and signals some of its shortcomings. In response, and in accordance with a recent turn in various disciplines of the Humanities, Loew highlights the ethical dimension of testimony and its responsible commitment to the other. In dealing with the texts as literary testimoniesOCoa complex genre, between literature and historyOCo, testimony is freed from the obligation to respond to the requirements of factual truth, and becomes a privileged form to voice the traumatic event, and to symbolically explore the role of excess."
On the Defensive
On the Defensive considers how our ethical responses to the Nazi camps have unintentionally repressed and denied the experiences of their victims. Through detailed readings of survivor narratives, particularly the works of political deportees Jorge Semprun and Charlotte Delbo, Sharon Marquart examines how well-intentioned people - including victims, their family members, and readers of witness literature - respond to such testimony in ways that are understood as ethical by their communities but serve instead to ignore victims' experiences. As Marquart shows, collective disasters such as the Holocaust expose the limitations of our ethical theories. To cope with this instability we withdraw and defend ourselves through inattentive and formulaic responses that turn a blind eye to the plight of victims. Challenging contemporary theorizations of community, ethics, testimony, and trauma, On the Defensive is a far-reaching reflection on the ways in which communal understandings of our duties and responsibilities to others can facilitate the denial of an atrocity's horrors.
In his Nobel speech, entitled "Art, Truth and Politics," Harold Pinter explained how he was fighting against the -tapestry of lies-. It is indeed those daily lies, lies of love or of state, that are exposed in this book, which emphasises his political agenda. In March 2007, the University of Lyon (Jean Moulin) and the ENS LSH organised VIVA PINTER, a tribute to his work centred on a key notion for the city of Lyon, the Spirit of Resistance. Pinter combined a concise, fragmented and syllogistic style with a keen perception of the metaphors of our time. The most specific instrument of this great humanist lay in his representation of power games. In this volume, scholars, stage-directors and lawyers tell us how his work is highly meaningful for them. Golden Palm winners Volker Schlondorff and Jerry Schatzberg, film and theatre director David Jones, and BBC radio producer Barbara Bray share with us the memory of how they worked with Pinter on his major plays and films."
Une connaissance inutile
Alors vous saurez qu'il ne faut pas parler avec la mort c'est une connaissance inutile Une connaissance inutile est le troisième ouvrage de Charlotte Delbo sur les camps de concentration. Après deux livres aussi différents par leur forme et leur écriture que Aucun de nous ne reviendra et Le Convoi du 24 janvier, c’est dans un autre ton qu’on lira ici Auschwitz et Ravensbrück. On y lira plus encore une sensibilité qui se dévoile à travers les déchirements. Si les deux précédents pouvaient apparaître presque impersonnels par leur dépouillement, dans celui-ci elle parle d’elle. L’amour et le désespoir de l’amour – l’amour et la mort ; l’amitié et le désespoir de l’amitié – l’amitié et la mort ; les souffrances, la chaleur de la fraternité dans le froid mortel d’un univers qui se dépeuple jour à jour, les mouvements de l’espoir qui s’éteint et renaît, s’éteint encore et s’acharne... Auschwitz et après, aux Éditions de Minuit : I. Aucun de nous ne reviendra (1970), II. Une connaissance inutile (1970), III. Mesure de nos jours (1971).
Why do the dead return? Do they remain part of the world of the living? This book examines these questions as they emerge in areas as diverse as film, Holocaust testimony, and the works of Jacques Derrida, Nicolas Abraham and Maria Torok. The book suggests it may be as difficult for the living to get rid of the dead as it is to live without them.
Journeys of Remembrance
The Second World War was a common experience of cultural and historical rupture for many European countries, but studies of this period and its afterimages often remain locked in national frameworks. Jones's comparative study of national memory cultures argues for a more nuanced view of responses to shared issues of remembrance. Focusing on the 1960s and 1970s, two decades of great change and debate in French and German discourses of memory, it investigates literary representations of the Second World War, and in particular the Holocaust, from France and both Germanics. The study encompasses thirteen works representing a variety of genres and divergent perspectives, and authors include Jorge Semprun, Peter Weiss, Georges Perec and Bernward Vesper. Addressing the underlying theme of travel as a means of exploring the past, Jones contrasts the journeys made by deportees and post-war visitors to the camps with the use of the journey as a literary device.
The interconnections between histories and memories of the Holocaust, colonialism and extreme violence in post-war French and Francophone fiction and film provide the central focus of this book. It proposes a new model of 'palimpsestic memory', which the author defines as the condensation of different spatio-temporal traces, to describe these interconnections and defines the poetics and the politics of this composite form. In doing so it is argued that a poetics dependent on tropes and techniques, such as metaphor, allegory and montage, establishes connections across space and time which oblige us to perceive cultural memory not in terms of its singular attachment to a particular event or bound to specific ethno-cultural or national communities but as a dynamic process of transfer between different moments of racialized violence and between different cultural communities. The structure of the book allows for both the theoretical elaboration of this paradigm for cultural memory and individual case-studies of novels and films.
Science and Emotions after 1945
Through the first half of the twentieth century, emotions were a legitimate object of scientific study across a variety of disciplines. After 1945, however, in the wake of Nazi irrationalism, emotions became increasingly marginalized and postwar rationalism took central stage. Emotion remained on the scene of scientific and popular study but largely at the fringes as a behavioral reflex, or as a concern of the private sphere. So why, by the 1960s, had the study of emotions returned to the forefront of academic investigation? In Science and Emotions after 1945, Frank Biess and Daniel M. Gross chronicle the curious resurgence of emotion studies and show that it was fueled by two very different sources: social movements of the 1960s and brain science. A central claim of the book is that the relatively recent neuroscientific study of emotion did not initiate – but instead consolidated – the emotional turn by clearing the ground for multidisciplinary work on the emotions. Science and Emotions after 1945 tells the story of this shift by looking closely at scientific disciplines in which the study of emotions has featured prominently, including medicine, psychiatry, neuroscience, and the social sciences, viewed in each case from a humanities perspective.
