Entre la enseñanza y el deleite: estudio comparado de las ficciones juveniles sobre el Kindertransport

Main Article Content

Aine McGillicuddy

Resumen

Las cuestiones relativas a la verdad, la autenticidad y la memoria son cruciales conforme avanzamos en el siglo XXI, alejándonos de la memoria viva de la era nacionalsocialista (1933-1945) y su terrible impacto. Esto engloba el desplazamiento de miles de niños judíos en la operación de rescate Kindertransport (1938-1939). Para muchos lectores infantiles, las narraciones de ficción continúan siendo su primer encuentro significativo con los acontecimientos históricos. De ahí la importancia de escribir novelas infantiles que representen eventos históricos con precisión y con un equilibrio entre enseñanza y deleite. Abordando tales aspectos, estudiamos los casos de dos novelas infantiles de las escritoras irlandesas Marilyn Taylor y Claire Mulligan. Discutiremos los motivos de estas autoras para escribir historias sobre las experiencias del Kindertransport, sus representaciones de este contexto histórico particular y las experiencias de los niños exiliados en sus obras, de cara a las generaciones actuales y futuras de jóvenes lectores.
