Summary:
"The Holocaust is an event that refuses to stay in the past. By its nature it both defies and cries out for representation and interpretation; yet representation is at the same time necessarily reductive of the reality to which it refers. Yet however inadequate, representation, of one sort or another, is the only means we have to transmit and appropriate past human experience."--Jacket.
