Lost Childhood and the Language of Exile
The picture of Jewish refugee children crossing the German border in 1939, which appears on the cover of Lost Childhood and the Language of Exile, can represent all the migrations of place and culture which have marked recent history. Using the insights of psychoanalysis, this anthology of essays creates a new genre of writing about the psychology of acculturation and cultural dislocation. Written by psychoanalysts, psychotherapists, writers, scientists, doctors and historians Lost Childhood and the Language of Exile invites the reader to enter a territory which is not only multilingual but multidimensional: defined and shaped by history, politics, economy and socio-cultural transformations. Here you will find stories of loss and hope, conflict and creativity, pain and endurance, reaching across generations to touch something essential of the multicultural world in which we now live.
