CHAPTER TEN: Nursing home

Paul Williams Karnac Books ePub


Black swarthy eyes of a robed salt & pepper bearded pirate answered the knock on the heavy school door.

“Ah, bonjour, bonjour. Entrez.”

Pirate took his hand in both of his.

“Entrez, entrez. Je m’appelle Père Robine et je suis directeur de l’institut ici, au petit séminaire. Je suis enchanté de faire votre connaissance. Suivez moi.

Vous venez d’arriver?” 1


Père Robine led him down a wood-panelled corridor a book-lined study chair glass of water awful English apologising in French brought to his senses a reminder that his French was awful no it wasn’t yes it was look at what was happening. McMorine said he was good at French how come he couldn’t understand a word the bus driver the woman in the shop the old man said now the pirate?

2. Mapping the SS Concentration Camps

Knowles, Anne Kelly ePub

Anne Kelly Knowles, and Paul B. Jaskot, with Benjamin Perry Blackshear, Michael De Groot, and Alexander Yule

CONCENTRATION CAMPS ARE AMONG THE MOST familiar and haunting places of the Holocaust. Two perspectives have come to dominate our view of the camps. The most powerful and most meaningful for many people is the perspective of victims, which is expressed so movingly in published memoirs, such as Elie Wiesel’s Night and Primo Levi’s If This Is a Man,1 and in thousands of survivor interviews and oral histories. These testimonies naturally refer chiefly to the parts of concentrations camps where victims were allowed or forced to go: the train ramp where they were offloaded, the barracks, the roll-call plaza, the hospital, kitchen, latrines, and the places where inmates were punished or put to death. Reinforced by the stunning photographs taken by Allied forces as they liberated camps such as Bergen-Belsen and by scores of documentaries and feature films about victims’ experiences,2 the spaces where prisoners suffered have come to represent the camps in popular imagination, to the point of becoming visual tropes, along with iconic objects such as barbed wire and crowded wooden bunks.3

2. Insight for Whom?

Schafer, Roy Karnac Books ePub

Traditionally, insight has been discussed as that which is to be imparted to analysands. It is they who are in need of insight. With-out insight their lives will be cursed with blind repetitions of their painful pasts. In this account, the analyst’s role is to develop insight for them through interpretation. The analyst is the vehicle of under-standing and, of course, the facilitator of those changes that will enable analysands to grasp and use insight adaptively. Facilitating those changes, especially through analysis of defense, itself a work of insight, is an essential part of this process.

I believe that this traditional belief that insight is for the analysand is inexact. Insight must, of course, be imparted to analysands. Without insight, they cannot reorganize their visions of internal and external realities in ways that facilitate adaptation (Schafer 1970). And yet there is a sense in which it is correct and useful to maintain that, primarily, insigjxt is for the analyst. How is this so? The answer comes in several parts.
