about this item

An innovative reassessment of Holocaust testimony, revealing the dramatic ways in which the languages and places of postwar life inform survivor memory

Based on the oral histories of Lithuanian Jews who survived the Holocaust, this book explores how the languages and places of postwar life shape personal narratives. Comparing the testimonies of survivors who remained in Lithuania and those who resettled in Israel and North America, Pollin-Galay’s groundbreaking work demonstrates how people draw from their linguistic and physical environments in order to understand their own suffering on emotional, political, and cultural levels.
