This article offers a psychoanalytic reading of the resistance of the human in limit-experience, outlined through concepts such as surviving identification and anarchist drive, with the intent to contribute to the integrative investigation on the subject of extreme evil. The difference and the "similar-dissimilar" dynamic the access to which leads to the process of subjectification appear as resistance tools in the fight against totalitarian destructive fury. By preserving them, we delineate a "Kulturarbeit" task in the collective elaboration of extreme evil as well as in the testimony meetings. This is an aporetic but ethically unavoidable task, in which the acceptance of human's frailty and elaborative limits may perhaps elucidate its prolificacy.
