Show Summary Details


This chapter considers the possible lives of the second-generation Czernowitzers had the Holocaust not happened, and studies the work of Aharon Appelfeld, who gives a very different perspective on the world of Bukowina than the narratives that have been presented in previous chapters. It then shows how objects and places can serve as triggers of remembrance that connect people bodily and emotionally, and also stresses that the second-generation Czernowitzers who return to their parents' homeland do bring their own embodied knowledge with them.

Keywords: Holocaust; second-generation Czernowitzers; Aharon Appelfeld; objects and places; remembrance; embodied knowledge
