Jewish History, Family History, Autobiography: My Grandmother, My Father, and Myself

By Jeremy Popkin

Association for Jewish Studies (AJS), Spring 2007

The author discusses his grandmother, his father, and how their lives can provide an interesting lens through which to view recent Jewish history. He asserts that while scholarship about one's own family does not fit a traditional model of scholarship, it can still be a valuable pursuit.
