Summary"Coming of Age in the Holocaust is a narrative analysis of the experiences of Holocaust survivorseighteen children, adolescents, young women and men who faced grim circumstances posed by Nazi state terrorism and its genocidal social policy. These survivors, in their narratives, describe how they dealt with misunderstanding, terror and abuse. Just over fifty years since the 1933–45 period, we may still find that there is much to learn from those whose social worlds were so terribly rent by racism and wanton violence." Publisher
