Gabriele Schwab reads these legacies in a number of narratives, primarily through the writing of postwar Germans and the descendents of Holocaust survivors SchwabÆs text includes memoirs. Both victims and perpetrators, she contends, carry a ‘transgenerational responsibility’ (105) to try to develop a more constructive relationality and dialogue across this divide. More than 65 years after World War II, its haunting legacies are still felt. This requires ‘cultural translation’ (116) and ‘humanizing the enemy’ (150).

Their view of trauma provides the linchpin for new psychic and linguistic structures such as the "transgenerational phantom," an undisclosed family secret handed down to an unwitting descendant, and the intra-psychic secret or "crypt," which entombs an unspeakable but consummated desire.

From mass murder to genocide, slavery to colonial suppression, acts of atrocity have lives that extend far beyond the horrific moment. They engender trauma that echoes for generations, in the experiences of those on both sides of the act. Gabriele Schwab reads these legacies in a number of narratives, primarily through the writing of postwar Germans and the descendents of Holocaust survivors. She connects their work to earlier histories of slavery and colonialism and to more recent events, such as South African Apartheid, the practice of torture after 9/11, and the "disappearances" that occurred during South American dictatorships.Schwab's texts include memoirs, such as Ruth Kluger's Still Alive and Marguerite Duras's La Douleur; second-generation accounts by the children of Holocaust survivors, such as Georges Perec's W, Art Spiegelman's Maus, and Philippe Grimbert's Secret; and second-generation recollections by Germans, such as W. G. Sebald's Austerlitz, Sabine Reichel's What Did You Do in the War, Daddy?, and Ursula Duba's Tales from a Child of the Enemy. She also incorporates her own reminiscences of growing up in postwar Germany, mapping interlaced memories and histories as they interact in psychic life and cultural memory. Schwab concludes with a bracing look at issues of responsibility, reparation, and forgiveness across the victim/perpetrator divide.

Usually I don't read and write at the level at which this book is written. How trauma is passed on is certainly a very complicated subject, and the author shows that she works at that level of complication, But the book uses far too many references, and at times seemes to be more of a node that links other references together, to the point where you can't really finish reading the book unless you have read at least part of the references on which the book is based, so it becomes a slow read and a somewhat circular process. After a while the writing style is more of ongoing drone into minutiae. I bought the book as part of some research for a fiction book that I'm writing, so the content has some value for me.
