The book examines the development of individual survivor testimony in order to identify if the changing context influences survivors' accounts of their past. Early accounts were taken in the immediate post-war years and latter interviews were conducted over 50 years later. Analysis of these texts has demonstrated the remarkable resilience of survivors' memory of the past over time. Whilst there is a strong continuity in memory of the core stories, this study also reveals an important shift in the way survivors construct and interpret their experiences over time.
