Claudia Moscovici, "Holocaust Memories: A Survey of Holocaust Memoirs, Histories, Novels, and Films" (Hamilton, 2019)

New Books in History

Claudia Moscovici’s recent book, Holocaust Memories: A Survey of Holocaust Memoirs, Histories, Novels, and Films (Hamilton Books, 2019), is intended for educators and politicians to draw attention to and educate people about the Never Again Education Act.Moscovici: “Nearly eighty years have passed since the Holocaust. There have been hundreds of memoirs, histories and novels written about it, yet many fear that this important event may fall into oblivion. As Holocaust survivors pass away, their legacy of suffering, tenacity and courage could be forgotten. It is up to each generation to commemorate the victims, preserve their life stories and hopefully help prevent such catastrophes. These were my main motivations in writing this book, Holocaust Memories, which includes reviews of memoirs, histories, biographies, novels and films about the Holocaust.It was difficult to choose among the multitude of books on the subject that deserve our attention. I made my selections based partly on the works that are considered to be the most important on the subject; partly on wishing to offer some historical background about the Holocaust in different countries and regions that were occupied by or allied themselves with Nazi Germany, and partly on my personal preferences, interests and knowledge.The Nazis targeted European Jews as their main victims, so my book focuses primarily on them. At the same time, since the Nazis also targeted other groups they considered dangerous and inferior, I also review books about the sufferings of the Gypsies, the Poles and other groups that fell victim to the Nazi regimes.In the last part, I review books that discuss other genocides and crimes against humanity, including the Stalinist mass purges, the Cambodian massacres by the Pol Pot regime and the Rwandan genocide. I want to emphasize that history can, indeed, repeat itself, even if in different forms and contexts. Just as the Jews of Europe were not the only targets of genocide, Fascist regimes were not its only perpetrators.” Learn more about your ad choices.

Psychopathy Awareness and #MeToo with Claudia Moscovici and Titti Damato

The Savvy Shrink

Join host Andrea Schneider for a global discussions of psychopathy awareness and the intersection of the #MeToo movement with Claudia Moscovici and Titti Damato.Claudia Moscovici, founder of Psychopathy Awareness Blog (psychopathyawareness.wordpress.com) joins Andrea Schneider, LCSW today to discuss the prevalence of psychopathy and the covert nature of this form of psychological abuse. She shares with listeners her expertise on how the public can be informed and protected from psychopathic (and narcissistic) abuse.Moscovici was born in Bucharest, Romania. At the age of 12, she immigrated with her family to the United States where she has gone on to obtain a B.A. from Princeton University and a Ph.D. in Comparative Literature from Brown University. Moscovici taught philosophy, literature and arts and ideas at Boston University and at the University of Michigan. Born in Bucharest, Romania, she writes from her experience of life in a totalitarian regime, which marked her deeply.In 2002, she co-founded with Mexican sculptor Leonardo Pereznieto the international aesthetic movement called “Postromanticism”,[2] devoted to celebrating beauty, passion and sensuality in contemporary art. She wrote a book on Romanticism and its postromantic survival called Romanticism and Postromanticism, (Lexington Books, 2007) and taught philosophy, literature and arts and ideas at Boston University and at the University of Michigan. Most recently, she published a nonfiction book on psychopathic seduction, called Dangerous Liaisons (Hamilton Books, 2011) and a psychological thriller called The Seducer (forthcoming in March, 2012), which tells the story of a woman lured by a dangerous psychopathic predator.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Claudia_MoscoviciTitti Damato is an Italian journalist who has recently acquired a degree in psychology. Having herself been a victim of a pathological person, she was interested in finding out more about that individual's behavior and found Claudia's blog. She not only read this blog, but also translated it and created the Italian blog, https://relazionipericoloseblog.com/il-blog-italiano-di-claudia-moscovici/. The Italian blog includes information and articles from Claudia's blog and books (the nonfiction Dangerous Liaisons and the novel The Seducer) as well as numerous other helpful articles provided by Titti herself and other contributors. She contacted Claudia to let her know about this Italian blog and they communicated by Facebook and became collaborators and friends. Together they decided to try to publish Claudia's book on psychopathy, Dangerous Liaisons, in Italian (Relazioni Pericolose) because there seemed to be little awareness about such dangerous individuals in Italy. Titti was instrumental not only in finding a publisher (Edizioni Sonda), but also in translating the book and launching it at the Feltrinelli Bookstore in Rome and at the Italian Parliament (Camera dei Deputati). Right now, they are working together on doing the same for Claudia's novel on psychopathy, The Seducer. Claudia considers her not only a great translator and what the Italians call "curatore" (media promoter, event launcher and translator all rolled up in one role), but also a great friend, educator on the subject of personality disorders and victims' advocate. She has collaborated with public figures and made big strides in Italy in informing the public about personality disorders and dangerous individuals.
