Memory’s Children

Nava Semel


The author is an Israel writer. She comes from a “silent family”. Her mother survived Auschwitz. In his article she describes the pact of silence between children and survived parents about the tragedy of the Holocaust. She also sheds light on the process of transferring her parent’s painful memory first to herself and later to future generation through her art.
