This article is about a piece of research started in 2019 which focuses on the literary, cultural and sociological analysis of biographical and family stories by contemporary Jewish female authors from Eastern-Europe writing in German. This study investigates the relationship between the literary and lingual appearance of memories and the age, the Eastern-European origin, the socialization and the identity of the authors. The research also deals with the differences between the literary forms of the various generations of authors and the identifiable irony-fiction-reality correlation in the memories told.
