This book uses a close reading of seven literary memoirs of the Nazi Occupation of France to show how the collective memory of the period has been shaped by political and social factors. It incorporates trauma theory, history, and folklore studies, examining a diverse group of writers and bringing to the fore the unique perspective of each.
Kathy Comfort is associate professor of French at the University of Arkansas.
