With Dr Joanna Beata Michlic
This book is the fruit of an interdisciplinary, in-depth research project on Families, Children, and the Holocaust, conducted under Dr Michlic’s directorship at the Hadassah-Brandeis Institute. The book fills a gap in historical knowledge about Jewish families and children in Europe and offers a fresh perspective on the Holocaust and post-war Jewish social history.
Dr Michlic is a social and cultural historian who is an Honorary Senior Research Associate at the UCL Centre for the Study of Collective Violence, The Holocaust and Genocide, UCL Institute for Advanced Studies, and an Honorary Senior Associate at the School of Slavonic and Eastern European Studies (SSEES) in London, and a Senior Research Fellow at Leo Baeck College, London.
“Child survivors of the Holocaust have often complained that no-one takes their memories seriously. This work does! From now on, no one will be able to address the Jewish family without considering the memories and impressions of the youngest survivors and this book is invaluable in teaching researchers how to interpret what is said and what remains unsaid.” – Michael Berenbaum, Professor of Jewish Studies, American Jewish University
