Obliged by Memory free pdf A collection honoring Elie Wiesel's seventieth birthday. Based on a three-day symposium, "The Claims of Memory," this volume conveys the omnipresence of memory in Elie Wiesel's writing and attempts to preserve the flavor of the exchange that took place. It represents several intersecting approaches to memory: the nature of memoir writing- an analysis of contrasting dimensions of memory in victims and persecutors- the ethics of memory- and chronicling of the "memory" of God through key texts in Christian and Jewish traditions.
