The Holocaust Kid by Sonia Pilcer

Wearing a tight black skirt, roach- killer boots, and teased hair, Zosha runs with her junior high schools fast crowd, circa 1960. For Zosha, life is about fitting in, stepping out, making it with the handsome Puerto Rican boy in the local movie theater. But for Zoshas parents, life is about how they survived when everyone around them died during the Holocaust. Now their daughter--born in a German DP camp and raised in New York City--must find her own way to survive. With unique emotional honesty, Sonia Pilcer illuminates Zoshas journey through the terra incognita of life as a 2G-- a Second Generation Holocaust survivor. Compelled to deal with her familys past while grappling with the way forward, Zosha finds herself writing poetry about the Holocaust, falling in love with a former neo-Nazi, dreaming of Auschwitz, and being seduced by a kinky Holocaust scholar. Fiercely moving and somehow funny too,The Holocaust Kidcaptures what it means to be born in the shadows of death, and to live and love without forgetting.
