We call it Take a Teacher, Make a Friend. The essays and a poem by Elie Wiesel, here translated for the first time, are written by twenty-four out of the hundreds of students Elie Wiesel taught during his distinguished career at Boston University of nearly forty years.
Primo Levi within Holocaust Literature
In the fall of 2012, Professor Harrowitz will be teaching RN459, “Primo Levi within Holocaust Literature”. Primo Levi’s writings employ a variety of interdisciplinary approaches to understanding the Holocaust: scientific, literary, theological and philosophical. The course will examine these approaches by reading Levi’s works within the double context of other theorists such as Arendt, Wiesel, and Muller-Hill, and within the practice of Holocaust testimony and witnessing in works by Delbo, Borowski and Fink.
