Launch of The Mind of the Holocaust Perpetrator in Fiction and Nonfiction

The fifth event in our New Books in Perpetrator Studies series will take place on June 10 at 17.00 CET and will feature Erin McGlothlin’s monograph The Mind of the Holocaust Perpetrator in Fiction and Nonfiction (Wayne State UP, 2021). The book 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 will be Gary Weissman and Katharina von Kellenbach. The session will be moderated by Susanne Knittel.
