- Sarah Kofman, philosopher and survivor of the Holocaust, contributed to the treatment of the traumatic narrative as something to be feared and suppressed, yet she also broke from this tradition with the writing of her autobiography, Rue Ordener, rue Labat, which detailed the horrors she suffered during the German occupation of France and the aftermath of her father's death in Auschwitz. This thesis aims to show that while her autobiography was a drastic separation from her previous writings, in which she denies any such telling of a traumatic story is necessary, all of Kofman's final texts that were written immediately preceding her suicide express a certain urgency with regard to her personal history. This project considers how Kofman treated her autobiography, from paradoxically hiding and showcasing it, to her claims that it didn't exist outside of her bibliography.
