Its use is, however, not uncontested and has been the subject of intense scholarly scrutiny in literary studies and cultural memory studies over the last two decades. As Astrid Erll has noted, the concept of ‘generation’ is marked by two dimensions: generationality and genealogy.

Some of them lived in the relative safety of United States or China, others were in the midst of it all, in Polish ghettos, occupied parts of the Soviet Union, or hiding in French villages.
