Bearing Witness: Laura Levitt on The Objects that Remain

In the first of this trilogy of women storytellers, Laura Levitt, author of “The Objects That Remain” and professor of Religion, Jewish Studies, and Gender at Temple University, talks with Barbara Abrams, associate professor of World Languages and Cultural Studies Department at Suffolk University.

“The Objects That Remain” is Laura Levitt’s memoir and examination of the ways in which the material remains of violent crimes inform our thinking about trauma and loss. Considering artifacts in the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum and evidence in police storage facilities across the country, Levitt’s story moves between intimate trauma, the story of an unsolved rape, and genocide. She asks what it might mean to do justice to these violent pasts outside the justice system or through historical accounts.

Review The Objects That Remain

Foreword Reviews “The Objects That Remains”

Levitt’s surprising, analogous approach combines art, photography, history, Bible verses, and literary influences to try and understand the holes left by a crime. By revealing doubts and her own rethinking over time, the book lays bare the process of its own making. The Objects That Remain fuses passionate research with piercing inquiry, finding peace within ambiguity.
