Children of the Lager

This account, culled from numerous conversations with other children of survivors is, first and foremost, the story of my life as a child of Holocaust survivors.

Many years ago, I discovered a New York Times article by Helen Epstein, written in 1972, covering the issue of the "second generation" after the Holocaust.
