Aims and Scope
Culture amidst a wasteland – this book examines the creation and reception of artifacts and new forms of creativity in the concentration camps. The title of the interdisciplinary work, Poetics of Survival, suggests the embeddedness of these works in a moment of time but also their transcendence of time. Drawing on a comprehensive compilation of such works, the essays in this volume analyze their overarching literary and visual topoi.
