Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper


The non-representability of the Holocaust as an unprecedented event at 'the limits of representation' has dominated Holocaust studies in philosophy and historiography (Friedlander). In the aesthetic dimension, the focus has been on trauma (psychological unrepresentability) and ethics (who can speak and how should we look back? Fiction versus non-representation).
