Title Ethics after Auschwitz? : Primo Levi's and Elie Wiesel's response / Carole J. Lambert.
Publication Info New York ; Oxford : P. Lang, c2011.



Descript x, 184 p.
Note Ethics after Auschwitz? Primo Levi's and Elie Wiesel's Response demonstrates how, after their horrific experiences in Auschwitz, both Primo Levi and Elie Wiesel could have deservedly expressed rage and bitterness for the rest of their lives. Housed in the same barracks in the depths of hell, a dark reality surpassing Dante's vivid images portrayed in The Inferno, they chose to speak, write, and work for a better world, never allowing the memory of those who did not survive to fade. Why and how did they make this choice? What influenced their values before Auschwitz and their moral decision making after it? What can others who have suffered less devastating traumas learn from them? The quest is in the question>>, Wiesel often tells his students. This book is a quest for hope and goodness emerging from the Shoah's deepest night>>.
