Herrmann publishes volume of essays on Spanish Holocaust Survivor

Associate Professor of Spanish Gina Herrmann, together with co-editor Professor Ofelia Ferrán (University of Minnessota), has published A Critical Companion to Jorge Semprún: Buchenwald, Before and After (Palgrave Macmillan 2014). The volume explores the life and work of Spanish Buchenwald survivor, author, and communist leader-turned-apostate, Jorge Semprún (1923-2011). Semprún led an extraordinary and risky life; he suffered and actively fought against Stalinism, Nazism, and Francoism. As a novelist, autobiographer, screenwriter, playwright, and essayist, his oeuvre grapples with the responsibility that surviving and deciphering paradigm-shattering historical events entails. This volume explores his cultural production in all its manifestations, across diverse languages and genres.semprun
