From displaced persons to secular saints: Holocaust survivors, Jewish identity, and gender in the writings of Zelda Popkin

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

In 1945, the American Jewish author Zelda Popkin visited displaced persons camps in Europe and encountered Jewish survivors. For the rest of her life, in letters, novels, articles, and her autobiography, she repeatedly recast these encounters in ways that both reflect the changing American view of the Holocaust and the unique perspective of an American Jewish woman on the subject.
