Abstract

The past five to ten years have witnessed a number of works of fiction – novels and feature films – that have black victims of National Socialism as their protagonists. These include works by African American and African Canadian novelists which place black Americans in Nazi concentration camps, a novel by the prominent French author of political crime stories Didier Daeninckx, and films by Black British film makers. This article offers a critical account of some of the texts and their key tropes – jazz and “human zoos” - and considers where they sit in 21st century memory cultures, including how far they can be understood in terms of Michael Rothberg’s concept of multidirectional memory. Explicable partly in terms of a growing store of ‘common knowledge’ that draws on recent historical scholarhip about the Black Holocaust experience, these works also introduce intriguing triangulations between Holocaust, colonial and American post-slavery experiences. Black writers and film-makers deploy their visions of a Nazi past to reflect on the current situation of African diasporic subjects, but they do so from different positions within the global Black diaspora.
