Audience at Main Street Books

On Tuesday evening I shared the stage at Main Street Books, Davidson, NC, with Scott Denham, Charles A. Dana Professor of German Studies at Davidson College, to discuss Odd Nansen’s From Day to Day and the larger issue of representing the Holocaust.

Scott observed that the Holocaust was a highly documented event.  The Nazis were meticulous record-keepers, and most of those records survived the war.  The sheer preponderance of such records meant that much early postwar historiography was skewed toward the perpetrators’ viewpoint.  Thus, it is all the more important that testimony for and by the victims of such violence also be disseminated and studied.  Odd Nansen’s diary is a step in such direction, and Professor Denham complimented the professionalism with which Vanderbilt University Press re-published the newly edited, annotated and introduced edition of From Day to Day.

I enjoyed the stimulating discussion and the attentive audience.  Thanks to Adah Fitzgerald, proprietor, and Eleanor Merrill, event coordinator, for their help and hospitality.

Dan Mask, a friend and enthusiastic supporter of my journey, provided the photos.
