Time's Witnesses: Women's Voices from the Holocaust

Description
In this Engish Research Seminar, Professor Jakob Lothe of the University of Oslo will present and discuss 'Time’s Witnesses: Women’s Voices from the Holocaust' (2017). The book, edited by Lothe, is the history and words of ten Jewish women who survived the Nazi concentration and extermination camps during World War II. These are women who lived through an unimaginable time, yet are still prepared to remember, so that the world does not forget. The women tell of a time of degradation, deprivation, starvation and hopelessness, but each one, with incredible strength of spirit, survived and extraordinarily share a common desire for resolution and a hope that by sharing their experiences these horrific moments in history will never be repeated. Noting that 'Time’s Witnesses' is not a comfortable book to read, Lothe finds it is one that needs to be experienced if we are to learn.
