Fiction Writing Contest: The Catskills and the Holocaust

The Catskills represent a central facet of the American Jewish experience, most often associated with comedy, food, a unique vacation style, and upward mobility for the young Jews who worked there. Though often subtly present in fiction and memoir about the Catskills, Holocaust survivors occupy a space central to, and yet at the same time apart from, this community. Refugees of a war that decimated their European population, these survivors sought a place to live in peace, and to be with other Jews. However, when they came to America they found a culture on the rise and a nation hopeful. The Jews in America were eager to be part of the post-war boom, and survivors found themselves on the margins even in Jewish Catskills communities.
