Sample text

I needed to interview a sufficient number of people to discern patterns in any one cat- history and memory of hidden children 35 egory or subcategory. Clearly, there is no “right” number for such research, but I sought to interview approximately seventy people, more than necessary for my purposes. When I went to Israel I oversampled. I already had enough interviews, but I wanted to ascertain the effects of being sent to Israel as a young orphan. Unfortunately, very few people I interviewed in Israel had had that experience.

Indeed, rendering suffering meaningful remains “a formidable task for social anthropology and sociology” (Das 1997: 563). They argue for analyzing the interactions between social suffering and institutional, political, and economic power, acknowledging that pain, trauma, and suffering are not simply health problems but also social, political, and cultural issues (Kleinman, Das, and Lock 1997: ix). Highlighting hidden children’s experiences and emotions within their multiple families and linking them to broader social and political structures guide this study of state-inflicted violence done to children.

In addition, I spoke with various Dutch academics and Jewish professional and lay leaders so that I could be sure that the kind of study I was proposing had not already been done. As mentioned earlier, although initially I wanted to focus my research solely on those who were orphaned after the war and whose fate was decided by the state-appointed committee on Jewish war orphans, I quickly modified that restriction after some meetings in 1998. I expanded my design to include anyone who was in hiding as a child, regardless of familial configuration after the war.
