Many Holocaust survivors shared the memories of their experiences to help educate future generations. They are not historians, but rather important eye-witnesses to what was happening to them at a given place, in a given time, in a given set of circumstances. By reading several segments of different memoirs on a particular topic, the reader is able to piece together a broader view of what was happening across a spectrum of experiences during the Holocaust.
