    Overview

    Summary
    The purpose of this study was to examine trends and patterns among a sample of Holocaust survivor memoirs. Due to more exposure in the mass media and due to the emotional development of the survivors, the number of published recollections increased dramatically in the 1980s and 1990s. The results further indicate that most of the writers came from religious but assimilated Eastern European middle class origins, and were in their late teens or twenties during the Holocaust years. Despite the similarities in content and style Holocaust memoirs are of little use to determine facts of the Holocaust, since their inherent subjectivity distorts an objective representation of the events. Nevertheless, survivor testimony is useful for the historian as evidence of the coping of individual survivors.
