New York, N.Y. PublicAffairs, 2004. First Edition [Stated], First Printing [Stated]. Hardcover. Format is approximately 5.75 inches by 8.5 inches. xv, , 301,  pages. Selected Bibliography. Index. Signed and dated by the author on the title page. Eva Hoffman (born Ewa Wydra on 1 July 1945) is an internationally acclaimed, award-winning writer and academic. In all her writing, Hoffman's consistent sensitivity is informed by her wide erudition, from her musical education to frequent Fraudian insight, both psychoanalytic and philosophical. As the Holocaust recedes from us in time, the guardianship of its legacy is being passed on from its survivors and witnesses to the next generation. How should they, in turn, convey its knowledge to others? What are the effects of a traumatic past on its inheritors, and the second generation's responsibilities to its received memories? In this meditation on the long aftermath of atrocity, Eva Hoffman--a child of Polish Jews who survived the Holocaust with the help of neighbors, but whose entire families perished--probes these questions through personal reflections, and through broader explorations of the historical, psychological, and moral implications oft he second-generation experience. She examines the subterranean processes through which private memories of suffering are transmitted, and the more willful stratagems of collective memory.
