Literary scholarship has thus far ignored the discontinuities of German-Jewish family novels and is therefore running the risk of contributing to a depoliticized reading on the one hand and to the ontologization of family and kinship on the other hand. Using the narratological method, the readings of the novels So sind wir by Gila Lustiger and Familienleben by Viola Roggenkamp focus on the traumatic effects of daily communication as well as the psychosocial processes within family systems. In this way, the incongruent shifts within the narratives of the family novels are brought into focus, thereby becoming readable as semiotic indicators of catachrestic (re-)significations of the kinship relations themselves, which are portrayed as natural.
