Landscapes of the Metropolis of Death: Reflections on Memory and Imagination   book icon  
by Otto Dov Kulka (2013)

read: 22 August 2019
rating: [+]
category: non-fiction

This is a slender book that is sort of about the death camps in Poland and sort of about how one who has been there, as the author was, thinks back on their time there. Kulka is a historian who is thinking, in this book, about his own history. It’s not the usual camp memoir talking about the unbelievable horrors people endured (though there is a small amount of that if it’s worth knowing about this book) but more about how he remembered what happened. What he learned about afterwards and how he managed his own feelings about these remembrances.
