What I particularly like about this book is that it interweaves the personal and political, illuminating the consequences of the Holocaust in personal narratives. It creates an intersection of literature and history by describing individuals' efforts to remember how the Holocaust influenced their personal lives. It is not a dry history textbook, therefore. It is a very emotional, compelling book that encompasses a broad spectrum of political issues and personal experiences.
The book also discusses the influence of the Holocaust in the future. It connects the past, the present, and the future.
