Abstract:

Analyzes various "discoursive strategies" used in French literary testimonies (by Elie Wiesel, André Schwarz-Bart, Jorge Semprún, Robert Antelme, Piotr Rawicz, and others) to express the extreme individual experience of the Holocaust. In the center of the semiotic interpretation, is the concept of the "inexpressible". Discusses narrative ways to overcome the silence and to assign a sense of "in spite of" to the absurd reality of the genocide. The goal of the analysis is to reveal "the practice of the inexpressible" as a poetic approach to a credible representation of an impossible experience.
