summary
Michal Govrin, one of Israel’s most important contemporary writers, explores the post-Holocaust world through fiction and essays. Govrin uses a multiplicity of literary styles and voices to capture the denial and exuberance of discovering oneself alive when so much has been destroyed. Several essays deal with her visits to Europe, especially Auschwitz, which her mother survived, and her half-brother did not.
