About this title


In this book, Vera Schwarcz explores the meanings of cultural memory within the two longest surviving civilizations on earth. Schwarcz finds a bridge between the vastly different Chinese and Jewish traditions in the fierce commitment to historical memory they share. Focusing on the transmission of cultural memory in these two cultures, the author examines how metaphor becomes an aid to memory, how personal remembrance plays a role in public commemorations, and how historical wounds are healed.


...a poetic evocation of the wrenching imperative of historical memory and an extraordinary personal story about uncovering family secrets. -- The New York Times Book Review, Judith Shapiro
