Traumi multipli. Zwischenstationen di Vladimir Vertlib e Spaltkopf di Julya Rabinowich

Chiara Conterno


This article deals with traumas portrayed in novels by migrant authors. Specifically, it examines Vladimir Vertlib’s Zwischenstationen and Julya Rabinowich’s Spaltkopf, in which the main characters are children and teenagers. Theirs are “multiple traumas”, because the young protagonists have to tackle several problems in relation to culture, language, religion, society and  their own growth and identity. This theme shows the development and diffusion of new realism in contemporary literature.
