Two essays on the Wilkomirski affair appeared in English during the summer of
1999: Philip Gourevitch's "The Memory Thief" (New Yorker, June 14, 1999, 48-68
) and Elena Lappin's "The Man with Two Heads." The historian Stefan Machler
published Der Fall Wilkomirski (Zurich: Pendo, 2000), which exhaustively reviews
the research and establishes definitively that Fragments is not historically
verifiable. I rely primarily on the two English-language sources because they
were the most ...

Wilkomirski's claim for authenticity, as well as his brutal and bloodthirsty
descriptions, overwhelmed most readers, and prevented them from employing
their critical faculties. The power of the proclaimed authenticity made historians
neglect the ...

The Wilkomirski case also fits into various units— mixed-genre, archival, and
fraudulent texts— and to broader discussions of posing and composing. In some
ways, Binjamin Wilkomirski's Fragments no longer exists, since it is the short, final
chapter in Stefan Maechler's archival The Wilkomirski Affair: A Study in
Biographical Truth. By the final weeks of the seminar, students are commenting
on the sequencing, wording, and tone of chapter titles. They notice that
Fragments comes after ...
