"Transcript is a disturbing document. Using the techniques of concrete and visual poetry, Heimrad Backer presents quotations from the Holocaust's planners, perpetrators, and victims. The book offers a startling collection of documents that confront us with details from the bureaucratic world of the Nazis and the intimate worlds they destroyed. Backer's sources range from victims' letters and medical charts to train schedules and the telephone records of Auschwitz. His transcriptions and reworkings of these sources serve as a reminder that everything about the Shoah was spoken about in great detail, from the most banal to the most monstrous. Transcript shows us that the Holocaust was not "unspeakable," but was an eminently describable and described act spoken about by thousands of people concerned with the precision and even the beauty of their language."--Jacket

"Elle compile des éléments issus de documents administratifs divers, de témoignages, de lettres, etc., pour représenter au plus juste l'horreur de la Shoah. Ces morceaux retranscrits, agencés avec une intelligence remarquable, constituent la lie d'une inimaginable totalité de l'effroi qui, à travers ses fragments infimes, se révèle d'elle-même. "Il suffit, dit Heimrad Bäcker, de citer le langage des bourreaux et des victimes. Il suffit de s'en tenir au langage conservé dans les documents. C'est la rencontre entre document et horreur, statistique et effroi."--Publisher web site

"Heimrad Bäcker's Seascape uses documentary material to recount a minor historical episode from World War II: the crew of a German submarine comes upon three men on a Norwegian lifeboat and refuses to take them on board. Bäcker's account of Nazi inhumanity uncannily echoes Un coup de dés, Marcel Broodthaers' A Voyage on the North Sea, and other nautical texts of the avant-garde."--Publisher description
