Qui rapportera ces paroles ? Le théâtre peut-il dire Auschwitz ?

Abstract : In 1966, even though she was aware of the difficulty that lay in re-presenting on stage the dehumanizing enterprise of mass slaughter that was Auschwitz, Charlotte Delbo nevertheless wrote the play Qui de nous rapportera ces paroles ? (Who will carrythe Word?). Far from seeking to offer a realistic or “historical” picture of the concentration camp experience, the author aspired to make visible and sensible a “truth” that can only be achieved by means of a poetic language and a “fictionalization” of memory necessitated by the constraints of theatrical form.
