Anika Walke

Oxford Oral History Series

  • First monograph based on oral histories with Holocaust survivors in the former USSR.
  • Illuminates the understudied question of how young Soviet Jews responded to the Holocaust.
  • Careful analysis of the dynamics of remembering in the post-Soviet context makes a strong case for the legitimacy of oral histories.
  • Skillfully weaves together oral histories, video testimonies, and memoirs produced in the former Soviet Union.
