Doerr, All the Light We Cannot See, selective blindness, selective remembrance, rewriting history, history is written by the victors
Throughout history, society's winners have selectively altered history to best fit the needs of a given population or political regime. Anthony Doerr's All the Light We Cannot See seeks to uncover the truth about selective remembrance and blindness as his characters traverse the complicated European landscape of WWII. This paper seeks to unlock this conversation that Doerr introduces through his 2015 novel.
