Versions of survival : the Holocaust and the human spirit by Lawrence L Langer( Book )

6 editions published in 1982 in English and held by 753 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Using and abusing the Holocaust by Lawrence L Langer( Book )

9 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 425 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"All of the essays in Using and Abusing the Holocaust consider Holocaust-related issues, but many of them are also concerned with a problem that affects consciousness in the modern era: how to go on living fruitfully amidst almost daily announcements of unnatural or violent death. Several examine reasons for the exaggerated importance still given to Anne Frank's Diary as a Holocaust narrative, for the uncritical acclaim awarded Binjamin Wilkomirski's fake memoir, Fragments, and for the different approaches to "justice" adopted following the Holocaust and the collapse of the apartheid regime in South Africa."--Jacket

The game continues : chess in the art of Samuel Bak by Lawrence L Langer( Book )

6 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 194 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The paintings of The Game Continues provide stimulating commentary on the richness and the limits of metaphor in art. Samuel Bak's provocative chess-inspired landscapes illuminate the waste of war in a profaned world, and its impact on the human spirit. Peopled by pawns and knights, rooks and bishops, kings and queens, Bak's vision of conflict from the ancient to the modern era deflates romantic notions of heroic combat. His shattered chessboards rise dramatically out of a barren terrain, recording a decline in human majesty even as he invites us to reconstrue more fruitful imaginings." "The Game Continues reproduces in full color a new series of 52 chess paintings by Bak. Holocaust scholar Lawrence L. Langer guides and enriches our understanding of this unusual artist's complex vision."--Jacket
