Article in the Mishpacha Magazine about the Discussion Group for Children of Holocaust Survivors

Last month the magazine Mishpacha ( published a front cover article about the Discussion Group for Children of Survivors titled “Survivor Families: Our Parents, Ourselves, Our Changing Lives”, which I have been running once per month at the Boro Park Y in Brooklyn.

The author of the article, Ahava Ehrenpreis, participated in one of the meetings and later spoke with me at length. She included in her piece some of the highlights from studies of the ‘second generation’, as well as many poignant personal quotes reflecting the burden of parental pain and also the resilience and pride that descendants of survivors carry with them.
