The purpose of this article is to analyze the relationship between emotions and narration. The main question concerns how emotions are communicated in and by written narratives. The analysis is based on a Jewish woman's written manuscript from Holocaust, archived as a Jewish Memory at The Nordic museum in Stockholm. In the article it is analyzed how the writer/narrator, with the help of formal and artistic techniques, communicates emotions and establishes emotional relations with the readers. The manuscript proves a good example of the complexity of the relationship between emotions and narration. The article shows that the relationship concerns genre, authority and authenticity, meaning that it has to do with which genre that is chosen for narrating, and that it concerns who the writer/narrator is, as well as if she has experienced what she writes/narrates about. In the article it is also shown that the emotions created in the narration is depending upon the character of the events recounted, how the tale worlds are depicted, as well as how the narration itself is experienced by the writer/narrator.
