Entangled Memories: Wartime Experiences in the Soviet Interior in Postwar Holocaust Testimonies

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This article probes the ways in which two purportedly distinct Polish Jewish survival experiences of World War II are in fact entangled. Although living through the Holocaust in Poland and flight into the unoccupied regions of the USSR have generally been presented as separate-with the Holocaust largely overshadowing survival in the Soviet Union-both during the war and afterward, many individuals, families, and communities experienced them as linked. Examining the interconnections helps to chart the development of Holocaust memory.
