Mother of the Wire Fence

Karl Plank

$55.00

Paperback
Plank explores the boundaries that lie between those outside and inside the experience of the Holocaust, attempting to bridge the gap with the power of poetry, artifact, memory, and religious symbol. "Plank's work is authentic. Its truth painful. He has taken us close to the inside".--Michael Berenbaum, author of The World Must Know: The History of the Holocaust as Told in the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum.

- Publisher

Is it possible to empathize fully with the victims of the Holocaust? Can those who approach the Holocaust in the aftermath ever know it in a way that does not trivialize its horror? With what language can we speak of such an event without at the same time betraying its meaning? In this powerful book, Karl Plank takes a hard look at these questions as he explores the boundaries that lie between those outside and those inside the experience of the Holocaust.
