Reluctant Witnesses

Survivors, Their Children, and the Rise of Holocaust Consciousness

Arlene Stein

  • The first book to tell the story of the rise of Holocaust consciousness in the United States from the perspective of survivors and their descendants
  • Draws on a wide range of sources, including the memoirs of children of survivors, analyses of survivor testimonies, interviews with children of survivors, and the author's own family story
  • Claims that Holocaust consciousness did not emerge until the 1970s and 80s, when the children of survivors moved into adulthood
