This booklet offers the 1st full-length case research of early postwar Holocaust testimony, concentrating on David Boder's 1946 displaced folks interview undertaking. In July 1946, Boder, a psychologist, traveled to Europe to interview sufferers of the Holocaust who have been within the Displaced people (DP) camps and what he known as "shelter houses." in the course of his 9 weeks in Europe, Boder conducted nearly one hundred thirty interviews in 9 languages and recorded them on a cord recorder.

Alan Rosen units Boder's undertaking within the context of the postwar reaction to displaced folks, sketches the dramatic history of his earlier existence and paintings, chronicles intimately the evolving technique of interviewing either Jewish and non-Jewish DPs, and examines from a number of angles the consequences for the background of Holocaust testimony.
Such early postwar testimony, Rosen avers, merits to be taken by itself phrases instead of to be enfolded into previous or later schemas of testimony. additionally, Boder's efforts and the aid he used to be given for them show that American postwar reaction to the Holocaust used to be no longer universally detached yet fairly frequently engaged, involved, and resourceful.
