In the interpretation of testimonies by survivors, emphasis is placed on selective memory, illustrated with reference to representative texts from different types of literature. A number of novels that have (in some cases) been given a mixed reception stand as representatives of the experimental approach (novels by Jewish and non-Jewish authors such as Hilsenrath, Gary, Grossman, Amis, Thomas, Ransmayr). A chapter is devoted to young Jewish literature in the Netherlands.
