The Holocaust at home : representations and implications of second generation experience / by Susan Jacobowitz

Publication | Library Call Number: PN56.H55 J33 2004

What came after the Holocaust? What happened to survivors as they dispersed and left Europe? What did survivors bring with them into their lives in new lands? This project seeks to analyze representations of sons and daughters of Holocaust survivors with an eye towards deciphering the implications of second generation experience. What kind of identity is a second generation identity? What kinds of traits, qualities and attributes appear in characterizations of those who are second generation and what are the issues or themes that resonate? With an eye towards defining this particular type of post-Holocaust Jewish identity and this particular inheritance, this dissertation analyzes works by authors such as Art Spiegelman, Thane Rosenbaum and Lily Brett.
