    Abstract:
    This paper examines Anne Michaels’ Fugitive Pieces (2007) in the context of Holocaust literature and historiography. It begins with an introduction to the genre of Holocaust literature and the problematic nature of ‘survivor’ testimony. Michaels’ work is then contextualized within this body of literature. The essay goes on to examine the means through which Michaels approaches the act of writing history, specifically the recording of history through alternative means to the hegemonic historiography utilized by the Nazis.
