From 1941 to 1945, the regime of Nazi Germany committed mass genocide against six million Jewish people in Europe, as well as five million Gypsies, homosexuals, disabled citizens, communists, and more. This volume takes an in-depth look at the literature that came out of The Holocaust, from non-fiction accounts like Anne Frank's The Diary of a Young Girl and Elie Wiesel's Night to fictionalised novels such as Sophie's Choice by William Styron.

This collection seeks to dive into the world of Holocaust Literature, and contains fourteen essays on the state-sponsored genocide perpetrated by the National Socialist government of Germany from 1933-1945 against groups of people deemed "undesirable." The essays in this volume aim to improve the reader's understanding of the Holocaust and to become more careful and critical as readers of Holocaust literature.

Editor, Dorian Stuber provides an introduction to Holocaust Literature and analyzes three primary accounts of survivors'; Primo Levi's Survival in Auschwitz, Elie Wiesel's memoir Night, and a short story "This Way for the Gas, Ladies and Gentleman" by Tadeusz Borowski. This analysis highlights the importance of recognising the role of mediation in Holocaust literature.

Each essay is 2,500 to 5,000 words in length, and all essays conclude with a list of "Works Cited," along with endnotes. Finally, the volume's appendixes offer a section of useful reference resources.
