Representing the Holocaust, Panel Discussion

From Day to Day is a World War II concentration camp diary secretly written by Odd Nansen, a Norwegian political prisoner. Arrested in January 1942, Nansen, son of polar explorer and humanitarian Fridtjof Nansen, was held captive for the duration of the war in various Nazi camps in Norway and Germany. The diary depicts Nansen’s daily struggle, not only to survive, but to preserve his sanity and maintain his humanity in a world engulfed by fear and hate.

Join Davidson College Professor of German Studies Scott Denham and history buff Timothy Boyce, who penned the introduction to the reprint of From Day to Day, for a discussion about the burdens and responsibilities of representing an international tragedy.
