Abstract: Relying on trauma and memory studies, the article discusses to what extent it is (im)possible to forget traumatic experience. It looks at how this issue is represented in Jenna Blum’s novel Those Who Save Us (2004) that is about Anna who used to live in Weimar at the time of the Holocaust and help camp prisoners. After WWII she moves to the United States and has never spoken about the past since then. Thus, her forgetting becomes possible through denial and refusal to speak about it. Nevertheless, her daughter is affected by the Holocaust
