[A] brilliant and erudite study. . . . Clementi s perspective is refreshingly feminist; she never flinches from recognizing the patriarchal order and its consequences. . . . This is a welcome and important book. Women s Review of Books"
Given its difficult subject, Holocaust Mothers and Daughters is obviously not a casual read. Clementi makes the complicated topic accessible to those who have some background in the subject. And although readers may not be acquainted with most of the memoirists discussed in the book, much can be learned from Clementi s analysis of their experiences. This is especially true for the last chapter, about Anne Frank, with whom most everyone will be familiar. Jewish Book Council"
Outstanding. . . . [An] important addition to the historical record. Modern Judaism"
"Poignant and path-breaking." --Holocaust and Genocide Studies
