englischAt the beginning of the 21st century, writing about the Shoah in French literature is undergoing transformation processes. Soazig Aaron, Frédéric Brun, Philippe Claudel and Jean-Pierre Gattégno transform the survivor, including his duality, into a literary figure and place a clear focus on seeing as perception and metaphor. They combine this with a critical self-reflection on the writing process and on the strategies of verbalisation. The factual aspects of the Shoah fade into the background in favour of a lucid critique of society and humanity. With this double trace, the trace of the victims and the trace of the awareness of human abysses, the texts stimulate social changes.
