As the liberation
of Auschwitz approaches its 70th anniversary next year, descendants of
Holocaust survivors face a dilemma that will deepen as time passes - how
to transmit "received memory" to future generations.
In a book named "God,
Faith and Identity from the Ashes: Reflections of Children and
Grandchildren of Holocaust Survivors," 88 of them tell how they
inherited the memory and how they hope to pass it on.
