The Fiftieth Gate Chapter Notes: a memory-jogger

The Fiftieth Gate Chapter Notes: a memory-jogger | History and Memory | Scoop.it

These are notes written by an English in desperation because the class were NOT doing so – they are not definitive, simply the kind of notes the teacher would think any student of a text would want to have as a memory-jogger because there’s so much information in this book. By the way, it’s NOT a novel – don’t call it one! It’s non-fiction; holocaust/survivor literature; biography or chronicle – NEVER A NOVEL!!

Nebo Literature Fiftieth Gate Page

The proliferation of holocaust literature in recent years is partly due to most survivors approaching their life’s end so we are eager to hear their stories before they are lost forever and we are determined to prevent the amnesia that allows repetition –that this could happen again.

Written by Mark Raphael Baker, an Australian Historian, The Fiftieth Gate deals with victims of trauma and how they deal with “unspeakable” memories that diminish their lives.  Today this phenomenon is known as Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome (Disorder), PTSD.  Many survivors of recent wars on both sides were and are undiagnosed sufferers of PTSD but their close friends and family witness the damage the wars have done to their psyches in diminished social, interpersonal and family relationships. Debilitating and caustic, their minds have been scrambled and their cognitive functions diminished.
