About this book

Memory Work studies how Jewish children of Holocaust survivors from the English-speaking diaspora explore the past in literary texts. By identifying areas where memory manifests - Objects, Names, Bodies, Food, Passover, 9/11 it shows how the Second Generation engage with the pre-Holocaust family and their parents' survival.

Reviews

'Nina Fischer's exploration of Second Generation Holocaust literature goes beyond conventional notions of family memory as defined by trauma and pathology. In a crowded field, hers is a new voice, clear, subtle, and moving.' Jay Winter, Charles J. Stille Professor of History, Yale University, USA

'A capacious interdisciplinary study that takes us beyond the impasses of trauma, focusing instead on nodes and continuities that enable the transmission of a 'usable past'. Nina Fischer's command of the field is impressive, she approaches her corpus with tact and generosity, her writing is clear and accessible. A superb intervention in memory studies.' Debarati Sanyal, Professor of French, University of California Berkeley, USA
