Louis-Ferdinand Céline was the pen name of Louis

Ferdinand Auguste Destouches. He was a French

novelist, pamphleteer and physician.

The name Céline was the first name of his grandmother.

Fifty years after his death on July 1, 1961, French modernist

author and ferocious anti-Semite Louis-Ferdinand Céline

is still causing controversy. Last January, an attempt by

France’s Ministry of Culture to “celebrate” Céline on

this anniversary ran aground after noted Nazi hunter

Serge Klarsfeld pointed out that Céline was not

merely the author of such recognized landmarks

of modern fiction as “Journey to the End of the Night”

and “Death on the Installment Plan,” but also

of three lengthy anti-Semitic tracts, published before

and during World War II, that were, as author

Pierre Assouline notes, “authentic calls to murder” Jews.
