Best Answer

The Holocaust widely affected British literature because the British felt so bad for the abused Jews that they wrote a lot of literature about it, including "The Holocaust and its affects on the World."

It also caused the breakdown of the human language 'death of language' as the atrocities commited were so awful, language was unable to describe them.

Also, many of the surviver's of the Holocaust wrote autobiographies, and novels of their experiences.
