Erin McGlothlin's new monograph will be discussed in the New Books in Perpetrator Studies series held by the Perpetrator Studies Network.
The Mind of the Holocaust Perpetrator in Fiction and Nonfiction examines texts that portray the inner experience of Holocaust perpetrators: portraits of real-life perpetrators in nonfictional interviews and analyses from the 1960s and 1970s and more recent fictional texts that imagine the perspective of their invented perpetrator-narrators. It explores new modes of engagement with ethically fraught questions raised by our increasing willingness to consider the events of the Holocaust from the perspective of the perpetrator.
The discussants during this event will be Sue Vice and Katharina von Kellenbach. The session will be moderated by Susanne Knittel.
