Memory in Relation to an Object in a Context of the Materially Deprived Total Institution of the Nazi Concentration Camp

Journal: ISTME Working Papers
DOI:

In this article, following the steps of biography of things, attention will be paid to picture few different biographies of bread, which as an object of great importance appears constantly in Nazi concentration camp prisoners’ testimonies. It raises the question why certain objects are so strongly present in memory, while others remain in the dark. By tracing bread usages and trajectories in which metamorphoses occur, I try to better understand why memory of the camp manifests itself in relation to bread and what kind of forms it takes. Topics of memory as embodied rituals and habits present in everyday life, as well as, place of bread in the narratives will be also discussed in this paper. This study is based on biographical materials.
