This chapter explains why one should consider H.G. Adler when debating on the Nazi genocide. Adler was an academic by profession, and then a poet later on, which profession he used to transpose his experiences of when he was transported to Auschwitz with his wife and mother. During his time in the camps, he gathered material for his poems and scholarly works. Despite the vividness and the factuality of Adler's work, it was given less attention than it deserves. The chapter describes Adler's contribution to the debates in post-war aesthetics.

Keywords:   Nazi genocide, Auschwitz, camps, poetry, post-war aesthetics
