Writing History, Writing Biography: Capturing H.G. Adler's Many Worlds

Thu, Oct 3, 2019
3:00 PM – 4:00 PM
RBD Library 3129

H.G. Adler (1910 - 1988) lived at the center of his times and on their margin. A survivor of Theresienstadt, Auschwitz, and two other concentration camps, he chronicled his experience and the loss of others in two dozen books of seminal history, modernist fiction, formally intricate poems, and insightful essays. Yet, despite close friendships with Leo Baeck, Elias Canetti, and Heinrich Böll, he remained largely unknown and neglected. Thus, unlike with better known figures, the story of his life must be told through the times in which he lived, as well as how the same lived through him. Biographer and translator Peter Filkins discusses the intersection of biography and history in shaping the story of Adler's life and work.

The lecture is free and open to the public. Sponsored by the Departments of Foreign Languages and Literatures, English, History and Political Science. For more information, contact Traci O'Brien at tso0001@auburn.edu.
