What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

[An] important and riveting book.--Choice

This is a beautifully written, deeply researched, and heart rending narrative of the events triggered by a chance meeting between a Holocaust survivor and David Duke in 1989. . . . Powell is to be commended for this generally insightful analysis.--American Historical Review

In this remarkable book, a gifted storyteller and distinguished historian of the American South makes us understand--in a way no other American writer has--how and why the history of the Holocaust bears so directly and importantly upon contemporary American life. Troubled Memory is an epic. It is the first work to explain and relate the miracle of Jewish survival in the Holocaust to the problems of racial politics, cultural integration, and civil courage in post-World War II America. There is nothing else even remotely approaching this book in conceptual brilliance, in scope and scale, and in the mastery of such a range of sources so skillfully woven into a narrative of such astonishing literary power. This is both a distinguished and original work of history and an inspiring, unforgettable family story. If you want to read one book--just one--about what it means to become an American in the late twentieth century, read Troubled Memory.--Charles W. Sydnor Jr., author of Soldiers of Destruction: The SS Death's Head Division, 1933-1945
