Images of Rupture Between East and West : The Perception of Auschwitz and Hiroshima in Eastern European - image 1 of 1

About this item

Scholars of Slavic literatures and other fields map the perception of Auschwitz and Hiroshima in Eastern Europe in a comparative perspective, asking whether writers see the two icons of mass annihilation as separate or related, perceive them as fundamental ruptures that shook the foundations of civilization, or integrate them into a narrative of continuity. After reviewing treatments in the US, Germany, and Japan for comparison, they look in turn at the Soviet Union, Poland, Czechoslovakia, Yugoslavia and its successor states, and philosophy and the arts.
