They Carry the Torch: Life Affirming Legacies of Descendants of Holocaust Survivors
November 5 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm EST
The Shalom Club presents: Dr. Eva Fogelman
Traditionally, descendants of Holocaust survivors as a group have been viewed as irrevocably traumatized by what their parents suffered. Now psychologist Eva Fogelman PhD offers a different narrative, providing moving and life-affirming stories from the children and grandchildren of Holocaust survivors.
These stories, based on decades of interviews, show unequivocally that post-Holocaust generations are thriving today in spite of their tragic family history and the rise of antisemitism. They may carry scars, but they are transforming pain and loss into positive action and a commitment to Jewish culture and traditions, attesting to the resilience of the Jewish community.
The event is free. Coffee will be served following the program.
