Translated Memories grew out of a conference held in Essen, Germany, in July 2015. As editors Hofmann (Univ. of Wuppertal, Germany) and Reuter (Germania Judaica, Cologne Library on the History of German Jewry) state in the introduction, their “interest is in specific cases of Holocaust memory as expressed in different languages and media by members of the second and third generations of Holocaust survivors." Another crucial point of interest for them "is the mode of translation ... [understood] both literally and metaphorically.” The resulting 22 essays are groundbreaking in their conceptual diversity, many of them insightful and well researched and enriched by, and sometimes paired with, compelling personal stories by the children and grandchildren of survivors. The existing literature on Holocaust memory is already vast, yet these essays put forth new and invaluable ideas that seek to answer how "later-born authors approach memories transmitted by surviving family members.” Of particular note are the five essays in part 4 (“Objects and What to Make of Them”), which look at the special significance of memories carried by simple objects handed down through generations. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Lower-division undergraduates through faculty.
