Summary note
This volume conveys the omnipresence of memory in Elie Wiesel's writing. It represents several interesting approaches to memory: the nature of memoir writing; an analysis of contrasting dimensions of memory in victims and persecutors; the ethics of memory; and chronicling of the "memory" of God through key texts in Christian and Jewish traditions.
Notes
