Holocaust Theater: Dramatizing Survivor Trauma and its Effects on the Second Generation

Holocaust Theater: Dramatizing Survivor Trauma and its Effects on the Second Generation

Gene A. Plunka  (Author)
Facts about the Holocaust are one way of learning about its devastating impact, but presenting personal manifestations of trauma can be more effective than citing statistics.


Holocaust Theater addresses a selection of contemporary plays about the Holocaust, examining how collective and individual trauma is represented in dramatic texts, and considering the ways in which spectators might be swayed viscerally, intellectually, and emotionally by witnessing such representations onstage. Drawing on interviews with a number of the playwrights alongside psychoanalytic studies of survivor trauma, this volume seeks to foster understanding of the traumatic effects of the Holocaust on subsequent generations.


Holocaust Theater offers a vital account of theater's capacity to represent the effects of Holocaust trauma.
