“..This inability, this failure to integrate the traumatic gaze into our field of vision, is..what produces the traumatic event as such.” – “We don’t see a past that lies beyond our reach, but one that exists in a fantasmatic form within our present..in Nuit et brouillard. ..The final lines of the narration in Nuit et brouillard describe the falsity of the belief that the Holocaust is an event solely of the past. ..The encounter with the historical object allows us to see our very inability to see.” – todd mcgowan
