PEP-Web Tip of the Day

When you hover your mouse over a paragraph of the Standard Edition (SE) long enough, the corresponding text from Gesammelte Werke slides from the bottom of the PEP-Web window, and vice versa.

If the slide up window bothers you, you can turn it off by checking the box “Turn off Translations” in the slide-up. But if you’ve turned it off, how do you turn it back on? The option to turn off the translations only is effective for the current session (it uses a stored cookie in your browser). So the easiest way to turn it back on again is to close your browser (all open windows), and reopen it.

For the complete list of tips, see PEP-Web Tips on the PEP-Web support page.

Emmett Wilson, Jr.

The author's long experience in working with orphans, especially those created by the war years, affords him the material to discuss the effect of the Holocaust on these children. However, expressing that experience linguistically is difficult, and it seems beyond language for him, as it is for the individuals who experienced it. This is a brief but well-argued and moving discussion of the difficulties in verbal transmission of the experience of the Holocaust and of the difficulties in reaching into the world of the orphans who survived their experiences in the camps. Language, flight into metaphor, allusion, all fail in the attempt to describe the experiences of a world where language breaks down and does not reach.
