Miller’s What They Saved: Pieces of a Jewish Past (2011). Both De Waal and Miller set out to explore the history behind certain objects – a collection of Japanese miniature sculptures, photographs, a mysterious land deed for a lot in Palestine, a postcard from Argentina, and a lock of hair – because without a narrative, these items are little more than signifiers for a story. 1 Symbolizing the loss of family, community, and culture – the lost world of upscale Jewish Vienna for de Waal, and the destroyed communities of Bratslav and Kishinev for Miller – family objects serve as the triggers and compasses of physical and metaphorical journeys into the past.
Souvenirs, relics (primarily in the nonreligious sense), souvenirs, and other memorabilia are important themes in the study of memory; they represent the past and are, in metonymic form, embodiments of the past. In his seminal study on cultural memory, Jan Assmann defines several external dimensions of memory, such as societal and cultural structures, mimetic memory, and also the Gedächtnis der Dinge, ‘the memory of things’ (2011: 6). Objects tell many stories, ranging from intimate to public, and act as carriers of personal and cultural memory.
In part, this explains why they are not a source of longing for the Second Generation; as representations of the family’s murder, they cannot serve as links to a usable pre-Holocaust past. These narrated objects form part of the parental suffering and provide memory links to a moment of trauma that can only be crossed by those who suffered it. Here, the Second Generation authors function only as archivists of survivor memory rather than involving themselves in the familial equation. Both examples illustrate the double loss of family and belongings.
