Summary Using examples from 200 hours of testimony by Holocaust survivors, this volume documents how memory responds to atrocity: how people comprehend and remember deeply traumatic experiences, and ultimately adapt. This book depicts how the Holocaust exists in the minds of those who went through it, simultaneously revealing the principles of enduring memory while making the Holocaust more specific and immediate to readers. Through synthesis of many different testimonies, one individual is presented in relation to others, showing personal tragedies as well as the collective atrocity. The findings are also applied in the volume to other groups of people who have lived through extended atrocity
