But this deﬁnition – which has so far remained unused – generates other problems as one thereby loses, apart from the exterminatory ‘intent’, the speciﬁc feature of genocide: to dehumanize by racializing. Genocide proceeds to both a horizontal and a vertical cut into the population: it targets births and ﬁliations to eliminate all descendants, to genealogically eradicate a subhumanity. This operation does not need to be justiﬁed to be efﬁcient: the criminal invents a race. And he can do so with respect to any group as long as it is ﬁctionalized not only as an enemy to be eradicated, but also as a sub-human to exterminate for eternity ….

The most authentic works about the Destruction, in prose and poetry, are in Yiddish. Is it because the majority of the victims were born into and lived in this language? 45). Furthermore, according to Ertel, Yiddish is the only language that shared its fate with its speakers. Even though it survived here and there, with some individuals or some marginal groups, it died at Auschwitz, Majdanek, Treblinka and Sobibór with the people that spoke it.
