The main aim of the paper was the representation of characters found in the dramatic works of Danilo Kiš. The dramas used include Night and Mist (Noć i Magla), first published in 1968, Parrot (Papagaj) from 1970, as well as The Wooden Coffin of Thomas Wolfe (Drveni sanduk Tomasa Vulfa), written for television in 1974, and finally Mechanical Lions (Mehanički lavovi), from 1980. The paper comes as a result of analyzing the main characters of the aform- entioned dramas solely through the image of their jewish identity, the holocaust and the after- math the same had on the overall being of the characters, thus forming a biography in their honour. It is clear after that most of Kiš’s Jewish dramatic characters suffer from psycholog- ical trauma after the Holocaust and most are yearning to preserve their memories through remembrence.The paper is also the result of research conducted in the course which was part of a Center for the Studies of Remembrance.
