A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

The author analyzes human documents: diaries, chronicles, letters, essays, memoirs, sermons, prayers - written down by the dying, shut in by the walls of the ghetto, hidden on the Aryan side, thrown out from a transport to a camp; all of them already condemned. The author makes these texts into a guide to the daily life of the ghetto to the end. In these texts, arising there and then, Jacek Leociak examines the forms of discourse which struggled with inexpressibility: life in extreme situations, experience in the shadow of the Holocaust. It is not possible to understand the Holocaust. But it is also not possible to be silent about it. It is for this reason that the work of Jacek Leociak, which continually struggles with the question: what can text mean in the face of destruction, provides us with an invaluable reading. This work is not a lament, although it keenly analyzes a lament. It is also not only a study classifying the varieties of discourse of 'personal documents' of the ghetto. It is rather a clean and subtle, masterly carried-out workshop, an attempt at building bonds with that which the dying witnessed. (Professor Alina Brodzka-Wald)
