Becoming Historians

Temma Kaplan

University of Chicago Press

This chapter presents historian Temma Kaplan's memoirs, which trace how she became interested in history. Kaplan's work as a historian and activist is generally concerned with overcoming injustice and she was drawn to discovering why this issue became so overpowering. She also believes that everything in her early childhood was shaped by growing up in a working-class Jewish extended family in Brooklyn during the Second World War.
