About the Presentation

In this presentation, three WJC affiliated psychologists who are children of World War II Holocaust Survivors share personal reflections and experiences related to this traumatic family legacy.  They will describe events in their own lives and milestones in confronting the catastrophic experience of the Holocaust in their parents’ lives. The focus will be on possibilities for healing from overwhelmingly disturbing family histories as well as on the range of healing experiences that afford resilience and well-being.
