Published in 1979 in the United States, Helen Epstein’s classic “Children of the Holocaustâ€? has now finally been translated to French under the title “Le traumatisme en heritageâ€?.

Helen Epstein was born in Prague from parents who survived the Holocaust.

“I sought people who, like me, were filled by a story they never lived.â€? For Helen Epstein it marked the beginning of her quest to record conversations with children of Holocaust survivors.
