In works like the book "Lost: The Search for Six of the Six Million" by Daniel Men- delsohn and the book (and later film) "Everything is Illuminated" has created a "'post-memory" aware- ness in families born to survivors. During a question-and- answer period with the audience, discussion ranged from the power of God to the power of jihad. In his final words, Berger reminded the audience that we must keep the memory of the Holocaust alive in useful ways, and that by keeping ourselves and our legis- lators-informed, we can From page 11A many of their choices, thoughts and capacities. As this second generation grew to adulthood, the Holocaust meant something different to them: quoting Helen Ep- stein, author of "Children of the Holocaust," remember- ing was not an issue, in that they were "guardians of a unique and volatile legacy." Referencing Art Spiegel- man's "Maus." and books by Thane Rosenbaum. as well as the film "Weapons of the Spirit" by Pierre Sauvage, Berger reflected on the special duty and special burdens of these young adults. As he pointed out, to be born from parents who have seen their first children murdered creates very dif- ficult circumstances in some ways a sibling rivalry with ghosts. In the words of Spiegelman, "silence is the defining motif." Yet these growing children were also the parent's translators and negotiators in a new culture. Reflecting these very extraordinary childhoods. Berger says. the films, short stories and novels of the sec- ond generation seldom deal with the Holocaust but are. instead, an intergeneration- at transmitter of trauma. They often shed light on the righteous and rescuers, and ask. in poignant ways, who am I as a Jew? The third generation-- iPhone best continue our quest for a more peaceful, more compassionate world. Berger holds the Rad- dock Eminent Scholar Chair for Holocaust Stud- ies and directs the Center for the Study of Values and Violence after Auschwitz. as well as the Jewish Stud- ies B.A. Program at Florida Atlantic University. With more than 80 articles. essays and book chapters, Berger has lectured on the Holocaust. Jewish literature, and Christian/ Jewish relations through- out America, Europe, Aus- tralia, South Africa and Israel. He is co-director of the Jewish American and Holocaust Literature Conference.

From page 13A they created was Siddur: For $9.99, users can have every prayer they could possibly need at their fingertips, day or night, no matter where they are although some of the functions were programmed to be limited on Shabbat. After the success of Siddur, the brothers decided to create a series of free holiday-themed apps that would get their name out there, and hopefully translate into downloads of Siddur. The closest holiday was Chanukah. and so Me- norah was born. Jeff Howard shows off Super Dreidel. the app he developed with business partner Richard Barry.

Schwartz thinks it appeals to those who don't own a menorah or who have never lit one before, or travelers who are away for the holiday and don't have access to their menorah.

Apple didn't like that. so Schwartz had to remove the function. There haven't been any quibbles with Apple over Menorah the worst he's had to deal with. Schwartz said. were some overly nasty reviews. "With Menorah we got a bunch of anti-Semitic reviews, because you used to be able to review without owning the app, so people would put up anything," he said. "But Apple removed them within a month." Schwartz grew up Or- thodox and is well versed in the halachah of the iPhone. RustyBrick has received requests to create apps such as a machzor and zemirot, which would only be useful on Shabbat or yam tov (when the use of devices such as an iPhone is prohibited), but Schwartz refuses. "Our rabbis won't let us," he said. When it comes to Meno- rah, though, things get a bit hazy. "Halachically the re- quirement [for lighting Chanukah candles] is oil." Schwartz said. "The rabbis said, 'OK, anything that's physical light' after that it's questionable if you're allowed to use electric ones with filament bulbs. "Bottom line, though, the mitzvah is not necessarily the lighting of it it's to spread the miracle," he noted. "If you open this app and show it to someone else, that's the mitzvah right there. If you have nothing else, it's better than noth- ing." Reprinted with permis- sion from j. the Jewish news weekly of Northern California, www.jewishsf. com.
