The Department of Languages, Literatures, and Linguistics in the College of Arts and Sciences welcomes Guy Stern for a virtual reading from his newly published memoir, Invisible Ink. A Q&A will follow. The reading is part of GER 300 Jewish Voices, German Words.
Guy Stern, leading international scholar on exile from Germany and Europe during the Third Reich and on the Holocaust, an emigrant and survivor himself, has dedicated his life as a scholar to German and German-Jewish literature. Throughout his career he focused on the memory of those who had to flee from persecution and on the memory of those, who could not and perished. Among his numerous books are Nelly Sachs: Selected Poems; War, Weimar and Literature: The Story of the “Neue Merkur” 1914-1925; Literature and Culture in Exile; and Nazi Book Burning and the American Response. Together with Rebecca Swindler, he edited in 2008 the proceedings of the Fourth International Conference on Altruism, titled The Rewards of Raising Righteous Children. More recently, he has become the focus of films and books about the Richie Boys, a special intelligence unit of the US Army, in which Guy Stern served during World War II.
