The Holocaust: Lessons for the Third Generation

Overview

The grandchildren of the men and women who experienced the Shoah as victims, rescuers, bystanders and perpetrators, lack the memories and experiences of their grandparents as well as the early recollections of their parents' generation. The Holocaust is, for many, an event as distant as the Civil War, antedating their collective memory and accessibility only through books, films and television.
