Ilany Kogan has written a powerful and astute book on the psychoanalytic treatment of the offspring of Holocaust survivors, drawing on her experience of being an analyst to some of their sons and daughters. Through an in-depth, sensitive presentation of eight analyses conducted with children of survivors, the author shows how the shadow of the Holocaust sets the stage for the intrapsychic drama played out by the second generation during the course of their analytic journey. These patients grapple with the meaning of the Holocaust - conscious and unconscious - in their own lives as well as the lives of their parents ... Illany Kogan's style is unique. She provides a depth and richness of detail in her patients' fantasy words, as well as her own experience of countertransference. She invites the reader to participate in the vicissitudes of the analytic process, including moments of frustration, analytic impasses and ruptures in the therapeutic alliance.
