Summary/Abstract: The subject of this analysis is a novel written by the Czech writer, Magdaléna Platzova (b. 1972), who belongs not to the second, but already to the third post-Holocaust generation. The author makes an attempt to touch upon the issues of identity and memory in the context of the Holocaust experience from witness’ point of view. The goal of this article is to present the history of the family and friendship of the octogenarian Kristýna Hládkova, one of the three protagonists in Magdaléna Platzova’s novel, Aaronův skok (2006), which is particularly interesting to us as an example of an area, where history and memory intertwine and influence each other.
