Génétique mémorielle. Shoah, mémoire et ADT

Abstract : As part of the Matrix Équipex, we gather a corpus of testimonies from survivors of the Shoah, which is diachronic from the perspective of the time of writing: immediate testimonies written after the end of the war, median testimonies written in the 1980's and recent testimonies written in the 2000's. The objective is to make use of TDA tools to distinguish the primary vocabulary which could be directly inherited from the camps and a reconstructed vocabulary that includes, over the years, the historical understanding of an event which was unintelligible to contemporary victims. In a way, we don't practice text genetics but memory genetics within the texts of our corpus. Contrastive statistics allows us to deconstruct testimonies into distinct lexical sedimentations reflecting superimposed layers of memory.
