Understanding in the Absence of Meaning: Coming of Age Narratives of the Holocaust.
Rogers, Theresa
New Advocate, v15 n4 p259-66 Fall 2002
Considers how the Holocaust can be rendered for younger readers without mythologizing or idealizing its victims--particularly victims who came of age in deportation and concentration camps. Discusses nine texts that deal with the Holocaust. Suggests that teaching the Holocaust through literary representations may require teachers to turn away from some imagined innocence of both the victims and their students. (SG)
