Bartov - Chapter 17
Travelling to Poland in ‘75 was not part of the social phenomenon it is
today. The group definition of "second generation Holocaust survivors"
hadn't yet been coined. You had to find everything by yourself. How to

parents began a long process of formulation. Even the choice of parents
as the addressees of an intimate discourse was not the norm then.
