Travelling between fragments of 'l'instant', Semprun's narrative technique highlights what Derrida has referred to as 'the aporia of testimony', in the sense that appealing to the instantaneous as a 'stigme', a singular point in time, also entails an appeal to an exemplary instance in so far as it must be able to be repeated, translated: 'To the extent that it is repeatable, the singular instant becomes an ideal instant.' (24) In this way, the autobiographer testifies to the sharable and unsharable secret of what happened.
Comme l'indique Derrida dans Memoires d'aveugle: L'Autoportrait et autres ruines: "Memoire pensive et ruine de ce qui d'avance est passe, deuil et melancolie, spectre de l'instant (stigme) et du style dont la pointe meme voudrait toucher le point aveugle d'un regard qui se regarde dans les yeux et n'est pas loin de s'y enfoncer jusqu'a perdre la vue par exces de lucidite" (72-73).
