Many in the second generation have chosen to write about their experiences as the children of Holocaust survivors. The products of these efforts take many different forms, from personal recollections to nonfiction and academic books. This program will explore the different processes 2G writers take to create their works. Dr. Irit Felsen, a clinical psychologist with extensive experience working with Holocaust survivors and their families, will be in conversation with Dr. Talila Kosh Zohar, author of The Ethics of Memory: The Voices of Mnemosyne and the Literature of the Second Generation and Martha’s Notebooks, which is currently being translated into English, and Goran Rosenberg, author of A Brief Stop on the Road from Auschwitz, about their writing and their experiences as children of survivors.
