ABSTRACT
The essay considered the novel "Suite française," by Irène Némirovsky, and the wartime diary of Hélène Berr, a Jewish student living in occupied Paris, France entitled "The Journal of Hélène Berr." Both women were Jews living in France during the German occupation of World War II and became victims of the Holocaust. The author explores the contemporary reception of the books which were published more than sixty years after they were initially written.
