Normally I don't count books on GR that I only intended to partially read in the first place, but I'm behind on my "reading goal," so alas.

Lyotard takes the Holocaust to psychoanalysis in the first essay. Ideally the reader here would be very well-versed in Freud, which I am not. Also helpful to have read Wiesel, who Lyotard spends a lot of time on. All in all a pretty compelling essay. David Caroll's introduction is also pretty fantastic.
