SPEAKER: Ruth Franklin
DESCRIPTION: Literature is art and memoir is fact. Franklin explored the limits of this statement in the context of Holocaust memoirs and literature. Can literature help us understand the truth of atrocity? Is memoir as straightforward and truthful as it seems at first glance?
