How the Holocaust informs trauma for me. Personal stories compiled by Descendants of survivors

The Holocaust is a kind of gold standard of trauma that illustrates in sharp relief what other traumas may hint at. It illustrates in sharp relief for instance, how memories are made and unmade, and how morality does not stem from a benevolent God but from inner strivings to survive and to fulfil. Perhaps what the Holocaust can bequeath is the only meaning that can be derived from it.
