This episode is sponsored by Barnes and Noble: purchase via the banner above to grab your holiday gifts and support us. Thank you for your assistance! It's interesting that literature seems to have cornered the market on artistic depictions of those who experienced the Holocaust firsthand. We think of The Diary of Anne Frank or Elie Wiesel’s Night first and foremost when we think of how war has been creatively represented by those who survived it-- or didn’t survive it. But it turns out...
