Children of Holocaust survivors (often referred to as “2Gs”, for second generation) are no strangers to intergenerational trauma. Children of survivors process and cope with inherited trauma in remarkably diverse ways, often through transmutation in the creative process or sublimation into other activities. In this discussion, clinical psychologist Irit Felsen – a trauma specialist focusing on Holocaust survivors and their children – will be joined by award-winning author and poet Elizabeth Rosner (Survivor Cafe, Speed of Light) for a discussion of how trauma is passed on and manifest from generation to generation.Buy tickets/get more info now
