Abstract [en]

In this paper I focus on the efforts of people to give life meaning after forced emigration or hiding during the Holocaust, or death of loved ones in the attacks on the World Trade Center. Could simple material objects be of importance in the process of adjusting to tragedy or a new situation? The experiences of survivors of the Holocaust or émigrés, and those of relatives to 9/11 victims are not commensurable. However, I think a case may be made for a similarity in the way victims of both tragedies use personal objects to go on with their lives.
