This thesis seeks to explore the works of three different Jewish-American authors to argue that, whether through fiction or nonfiction, second-generation Holocaust literature reflects the frustration with second-hand trauma, the perception of pressure from the first-generation and response to communal memorial practices which has a profound impact on the cultivation of personal Jewish-American identity.
