This issue of the Journal of Literature and Trauma Studies gathers together perspectives on the literatures of memory and trauma related to the specific complexities of the "experience" of the Nazi rise to power and the attendant horrors and political and personal catastrophes the establishment of Nazi political power entailed. The defeat and collapse of Nazi power eventually established the subsequent division into Eastern and Western Europe that reoriented older geographical, political, national, and cultural perspectives. Crucially, then, the articles presented here deal with what may be termed "the literatures of the aftermath" and therefore the interlocking problems of both personal remembrance and cultural memory that always occur in the "after" impact of the events. All the articles present here recognize the irreducible nature of traumatic events with the subsequent strivings of troubled memory and the demands of a damaged language. This interlacing pattern of traumatic events, the strivings of remembrance, and the demands of literary form is forever extending itself and requires an ever-expanding and self-critical series of literary categories and concepts in order to keep pace with the demands of both the memory of those events and the literary and cultural forms that emerge to deal
