The course aims to see how the particular events of the Holocaust have been represented to and responded to across a range of both fictional and non- fictional media and to discuss the texts in the light of the specific theoretical debates to have grown up around the subject. The course will examine issues of memory, identity, history, the role of the Holocaust in popular entertainment.
