This article raises questions about the role and function of influence in Holocaust fiction. Particular attention is paid to the works of fiction in which authors are consciously using documentary materials. Three case studies are presented: Once by Morris Gleitzman, Call the Swallow by Fergus O'Connel, and Polsk Krigsommar by Mogels Kjelgaard. In each case, the links with the documentary sources are analysed in detail
