In this brave and original work, Federica Clementi focuses on the mother-daughter bond as depicted in six works by women who experienced the Holocaust, sometimes with their mothers, sometimes not. The daughters' memoirs, which record the "all-too-human" qualities of those who were persecuted and murdered by the Nazis, show that the Holocaust cannot be used to neatly segregate lives into the categories of before and after. Clementi's discussions of differences in social status, along with the persistence of antisemitism and patriarchal structures, support this point strongly, demonstrating the tenacity of trauma-individual, familial, and collective-among Jews in twentieth-century Europe.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Poignant and path-breaking. Holocaust and Genocide Studies"
[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
