Search & Research, Lectures and Papers 14: Jewish Children in Nazi-Occupied Poland - Early Postwar Recollections of Survival and Polish-Jewish Relations During the Holocaust

Joanna Beata Michlic


Through an in-depth textual analysis of eyewitness testimonies, the author reconstructs various categories of child survivors and the ways in which they coped with social relations on the Aryan side in Nazi-occupied Poland, using concepts of “performance” pioneered by Goffman. These testimonies bring a new dimension to issues of betrayal and hostility as well as of sacrifice and dedication, creating a broader view of historical representation through pictures of individuals.
