In this illuminating study of six autobiographical works by Jewish Holocaust victims or survivors, Federica Clementi shows that their mother-daughter relationships follow some of the same complex, ambivalent, contradictory, and ultimately devastating trajectories that characterize those in ordinary times. Yet in giving space and close attention to the intimate stories of women, Holocaust Mothers and Daughters discovers unexpected aspects of creativity and survival in times of catastrophe.".

Riassunto: In this brave and original work, Federica Clementi focuses on the mother-daughter bond as depicted in six works by women who experienced the Holocaust, sometimes with their mothers, sometimes not. The daughters' memoirs, which record the "all-too-human" qualities of those who were persecuted and murdered by the Nazis, show that the Holocaust cannot be used to neatly segregate lives into the categories of before and after. Clementi's discussions of differences in social status, along with the persistence of antisemitism and patriarchal structures, support this point strongly, demonstrating the tenacity of trauma--individual, familial, and collective--among Jews in twentieth-century Europe.
L'autore: FEDERICA K. CLEMENTI is assistant professor of Jewish studies at the University of South Carolina.
