transcript is a disturbing document. Using the techniques of concrete and visual poetry, Heimrad Bäcker presents quotations from the Holocaust’s planners, perpetrators, and victims. The book offers a startling collection of documents that confront us with details from the bureaucratic world of the Nazis and the intimate worlds they destroyed. Bäcker’s sources range from victims’ letters and medical charts to train schedules and the telephone records of Auschwitz. His transcriptions and reworkings of these sources serve as a reminder that everything about the Shoah was spoken about in great detail, from the most banal to the most monstrous. transcript shows us that the Holocaust was not “unspeakable,” but was an eminently describable and described act spoken about by thousands of people concerned with the precision and even the beauty of their language.

Heimrad B�cker (1925-2003) was a poet, a photographer, and the editor of the journal neue texte and the Austrian avant-garde press Edition Neue Texte. As a teenager, he was active in the regional leadership of the Hitler Youth and joined the Nazi party when he turned eighteen. After the war, he studied philosophy and wrote his doctoral dissertation on Karl Jaspers. Beginning in the late 1960s, B�cker attempted to come to terms with his wartime activity.
