Summary This article draws upon Holocaust survivor testimonies to explore the interaction between place and displacement in the formation and evolution of local, Jewish and ethnic identities. In particular, the ways in which the personal experiences of interviewees have affected their notions of ‘home’ and ‘belonging’ are addressed. Relationships with former homelands vary and have been significantly affected by pre-war, wartime and post-war experiences. Connections with home and family have frequently been severed and are more likely to exist in diasporic communities than in countries of origin.
