"What makes this book so original is the way she deftly interweaves the stories of the survivors with a sharp analysis of the social constructs"

What makes this book so original is the way she deftly interweaves the stories of the survivors with a sharp analysis of the social constructs which surrounded them after the war, and how psychoanalysts and carers, political and religious institutions, and in later years, oral history projects, all tried to impose their own shape on the stories of the child survivors.
