Primo Levi opened his memoir ""Survival in Auschwitz"" with a call to remember, reflect upon, and teach about the Holocaust - or to face the rejection of subsequent generations. The transmittal of this urgent knowledge between generations was the theme of the Eigth Lessons and Legacies Conference on the Holocaust, and it is the focus of this volume. The circular formulation - from generation to generation - points backward and forward: where do we locate the roots of the Holocaust, and how do its repercussions manifest themselves? Contributions by scholars, some of whom are survivors and children of survivors, remind us that the Holocaust does - and must - remain present from generation to generation.
