Public Scholars Project
Writing About Other People's Memories
March 13, 2018 at 11:00 AM | Princeton, NJ | Princeton Public Library
Consider how the children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren of Holocaust survivors have a living connection to the memories that were passed on to them. Survivors’ memories become their memories, and to some degree, they bind them to the past. In fact, many of us are caught between our elders’ history and the lives we are living. The legacy that binds us to the past also inspires us to pass these memories on. Building a foundation of understanding through the narratives of others, like those of descendants of survivors, this session will explore why and how we share generational stories.
