abstract

This chapter analyzes the role of identity, heroism and dignity in the resistance of the disrupted subject in the Holocaust survivor’s memoir written by Janina Hescheles Altman, which was published as a book in 1946 under the title Oczyma dwunastoletniej dziewczyny (1946) (English transl., My Lvov. Holocaust Memoir of a Twelve-Year-Old Girl). The analysis takes an interdisciplinary approach that focuses on the concentrationary universe and the politics of representation, using as corpus the Catalan edition of Hescheles’ memoir, which is one of the few versions that takes comprehensively into account her original manuscript.
