Testimony of a pilgrim between shadowsAbstractThe project is intended to study Boris Pahor's work entitled Necropolis, over the Nazi horror testimonials literature. It seeks to address the memory and testimonial issues starting from a present toward the past, and a past which allows rethinking the present. A need of memory as a form to prevent that the dangers of totalitarianism and fanatism, could be repeated; it's a sort of openness to the unpredictable of future here and now as if the Nazi genocide wouldn't be an alien, even with the singular and immeasurable characteristics of genocide catastrophes happened in our current Latin-American context; Colombia, Brazil among other countries. The illness of traditional representation models is sought on the traumatic experience narrative, from a multidisciplinary reading considering visual arts, psychoanalysis critical reflections of some thinkers as Walter Benjamin, Jacques Derrida, Emmanuel Levinas, Vilem Flusser, Teodor Adorno, among others, intended to understand the narrative tensions and trauma implications, and the paradox between their impossibility and their necessity. Finally, the work of Evgen Bavcar is addressed to establish dialogues and translations between the thresholds of image and literature which also lead to go deeper on the further questions, from an exposition entitled Une Lumière Dificile, dedicated to his meeting with Boris Pahor and the gloomy picture of horror. So scriptural elements of image and the dimensions of image on scripture, are revalorized during the catastrophe representation. (AU)
