God, Faith & Identity from the Ashes: reflections of children and grandchildren of Holocaust survivors, edited by Menachem Z. Rosencraft. Prologue by Elie Wiesel. Published by Jewish Lights, 2015. First Edition. For the children and grandchildren of Holocaust (Shoah) survivors and refugees from Nazi persecution, the suffering and survival of their immediate ancestors and the annihilation of virtually their entire families have, in large part, shaped their perspectives on God, faith and Jewish identity. Their reflections on the memories transmitted to them and its effect on their lives will inform, challenge and inspire people of all faiths and backgrounds. While the collective legacy of Holocaust survivors and refugees belongs to the entire Jewish people, as well as all humankind, on an individual level this extremely personal and often idiosyncratic legacy was transmitted first and foremost by the survivors to their own children and grandchildren. Despite the contributor's diversity, common themes shine through. Intended for a popular audience of people of all faiths and backgrounds, these emotionally powerful, deeply moving statements will have a profound effect on the way our and future generations understand and shape their understanding of the Holocaust and their own personal identity in years to come.
