    • Abstract:
      It is widely recognised that Sebald's works combine fictional invention with documentary fact. By tracking down the details of the relationship between fact and invention in a specific text - the passage towards the end of Austerlitz in which is revealed that the new Bibliothèque Nationale in Paris was built on the site of an internment camp where Jewish prisoners sorted and repaired goods looted from Jewish apartments during the German occupation - this essay demonstrates how Sebald made a significant contribution to the historical memory of the German occupation through revealing the existence of a camp that was virtually unknown before. A year after the French translation of Austerlitz appeared, a full historical account of the camps was published, in which Sebald was acknowledged as having played an important role in bringing to light this hidden episode of the Holocaust.
