MOURA, Maria Cristina Martins. What remains of Auschwitz?: What remains to psychoanalysis?. Reverso [online]. 2013, vol.35, n.66, pp. 51-54. ISSN 0102-7395.

From Auschwitz's point of view, it is apprehended that the memory of horrifying experiences lived, impossible to be told, have not been forgotten. Because of the havoc of the symbolic by the real, a significant tissue is missed, which could be able to describe such experience. Therefore, many reports were accompanied by syncope, fainting out and crying spells, demonstrating through the temporary disappearance of the subject his or her impossibility to tell. It remains to psychoanalysis ap-proach what remains of Auschwitz with the rest, that, due to the analytic branch, is presented as the cause of desire.
