📒The Witness As Object ✍ Steffi de Jong
✏The Witness as Object Book Summary : In recent years, historical witnessing has emerged as a category of "museum object." Audiovisual recordings of interviews with individuals remembering events of historical importance are now integral to the collections and research activities of museums. They have also become important components in narrative and exhibition design strategies. With a focus on Holocaust museums, this study scrutinizes for the first time the new global phenomenon of the "musealization" of the witness to history, exploring the processes, prerequisites, and consequences of the transformation of video testimonies into exhibits.
📒The Witness And The Other World ✍ Mary B. Campbell
✏The Witness and the Other World Book Summary : Surveying exotic travel writing in Europe from late antiquity to the age of discover, The Witness and the Other World illustrates the fundamental human desire to change places, if only in the imagination. Mary B. Campbell looks at works by pilgrims, crusaders, merchants, discoverers, even armchair fantasists such as Mandeville, as well as the writings of Marco Polo, Columbus, and Walter Raleigh. According to Campbell, these travel accounts are exotic because they bear witness to alienated experiences; European travelers, while claiming to relate fact, were often passing on monstrous projections. She contends that their writing not only documented but also made possible the conquest of the peoples whom she travelers described, and she shows how travel literature contributed to the genesis of the modern novel and the modern life sciences.

📒The Era Of The Witness ✍ Annette Wieviorka
✏The Era of the Witness Book Summary : What is the role of survivor testimony in Holocaust remembrance? Today such recollections are considered among the most compelling and important historical sources we have, but this has not always been true. In The Era of the Witness, a concise, rigorously argued, and provocative work of cultural and intellectual history, Annette Wieviorka seeks to answer this surpassingly complex question. She analyzes the conditions under which survivor testimonies have been produced, how they have been received over time, and how the testimonies shaped the construction of history and collective memory. Wieviorka discerns three successive phases in the evolution of the roles and images of the Holocaust witness. The first phase is marked by the testimony left by those who did not survive the Holocaust but managed nevertheless to record their experiences. The second, most important, phase is centered on the Eichmann trial, which for Wieviorka is the moment (1961–1962) when a broad cultural deafness to survivors' stories was replaced by the image of the witness as "bearer of history." The author follows the changing nature of the witness into a third phase, which she calls "the era of the witness." Especially concerned with the pedagogical and political uses to which survivor testimony has been put, Wieviorka examines factors that determine when and how survivor testimonies are incorporated into the larger narrative of the Holocaust, according it a privileged place in our understanding. By exploring the ways in which the Holocaust is remembered, The Era of the Witness also deepens our understanding of how testimony can help to define not only twentieth-century history but also more recent episodes of mass killing that are only now "becoming history."

📒The Witness ✍ Naomi Kryske
✏The Witness Book Summary : Jennifer Jeffries is single and the innocent victim of a violent assault. She is forced to deal with her trauma in the company of strangers, since she was in London and not her Houston home when the attack occurred. In addition, she must testify in one of London's Crown Courts against the man who nearly killed her. Her inauspicious circumstances and the intense style of writing create a strong connection with the reader. Strong supporting characters enrich the narrative. No one expected Jenny to survive the physical and emotional trauma she experienced-not the doctors, not the London serial killer who chose her for his seventh victim, not the Scotland Yard detective who desperately needed her to testify against her attacker. Jenny is kidnapped and is a victim of violence. The threat to her life is present both before and after her attacker is convicted and continues to the end of the book. Suspense also plays a role in whether she will have recovered sufficiently from her trauma to testify against her attacker and later to participate in a romantic relationship with the Scotland Yard detective who handled her case. And no one expected this young, petite Texan to overcome her fears-not her witness protection team nor the tough ex-special-forces sergeant in charge of them. And no one expected her character and courage to blossom- not the defense barristers who sought to discredit her testimony and not even Jenny herself, who had to battle pain and panic to rediscover hope and love. This novel portrays the rebuilding of a traumatized life from victim to survivor to victor-each step an important shift in the struggle to regain personal power. Clues for real recovery are revealed from Jenny's journey through the 1998-99 British law enforcement and legal system and beyond. The first of a trilogy, this work of women's fiction contains the same psychological intensity as Anna Quindlen's Black and Blue. Ms. Quindlen's protagonist endures, but Ms. Kryske's triumphs. Healing and hope overcome fear and pain. The Witness breaks new ground by showing the enduring effects trauma can have on a life and the process victims must undergo to heal, while still being an entertaining and compelling read, and covers the steps toward healing from violence.
