Abstract

This article rereads the novella De nacht van de Girondijnen by the Jewish-Dutch writer and historian Jacques Presser. This text is often considered to be a failed work of literature. This article avers that this so-called failure in fact bears witness to Presser's traumatizing experience of the Shoah.
