Description
Americans now learn about the Holocaust in high school, watch dramas and documentaries about it on television, and visit museums dedicated to preserving it in our social memory. But for the first two decades following the end of World War II, discussion of the Holocaust was largely absent from American culture and the tragedy was generally seen as irrelevant to non–Jewish Americans. In this book, sociologist Arlene Stein—herself the daughter of a Holocaust survivor—mixes memoir, history, and sociological analysis to tell the story of the rise of Holocaust consciousness in the United States. If survivors tended to see Holocaust storytelling as mainly a private affair, their children reclaimed their hidden family histories and transformed them into public stories.

"Beautifully and clearly written, Reluctant Witness presents the challenges and complexities of Holocaust remembrance through interpretive history, interviews with survivors, and the author's own stories of her life as a child of survivors. The brilliance of this book is how it painstakingly traces the distinct time periods in which attitudes shifted. Anyone interested in this topic should read this incisive and wise analysis in this outstanding volume."—New Jersey Jewish News
