About this book

This book challenges current thinking on memory by examining the complex ways in which the social inheritance of the Nazi Holocaust is gendered. It considers how the past is handed down in the US, Poland and Britain through historiography, autobiographies, documentary and feature films, memorial sites and museums. It explores the configuration of socially inherited memories about the Holocaust in young people of different cultural backgrounds. Scholarly and accessible, the book provides a groundbreaking approach to understanding the significance of gender in relation to cultural mediations of history.
