LOOKING FOR SOURCES: On Holocaust Kitsch

I’m looking for sources discussing “Holocaust” books, like “Maus” or “Anne Frank” as books that are NOT about the Holocaust. I realize that it is a controversial territory; I’m seeking works that see such productions as a distortion of Holocaust history in the style of Alvin Rosenfeld or Cynthia Ozick discussing Anne Frank. Some of these productions could be seen as kitsch, and juxtaposed to the “real” Holocaust writing (e.g., Levi, Borowski). Any ideas are greatly appreciated.
