This is a book about what it is like to be a child of a concentration camp survivor. Using a mixture of oral history, memoir and psychological interpretation, the book aims to show how the legacy of the Holocaust has extended beyond those who directly suffered its horrors. The people whom the author talked to describe their relationships with their parents, and speak about what the Holocaust means for them personally. The author himself is the child of Holocaust survivors.
