‘Generations After the Shoah’ holds annual Chanukah event



Over 45 members of the Generations After the Shoah, a group established for the children and grandchildren of Holocaust survivors, gathered for their annual Chanukah brunch. Sponsored by JCRC’s Goodwin Holocaust Museum and Education Center (GHMEC), members of the Generations After group had the opportunity to listen to Irit Felsen speak on the topic of growing up as the child of a Holocaust survivor. Felsen’s talk, “Inheriting Historical Trauma and Resilience,” focused on the intergenerational transmission of effects related to parental trauma, as well as on the transmission of resilience. For more information about the Generations After the Shoah group, contact Helen Kirschbaum, director of the GHMEC, at (856) 751-9500, ext. 1249 or hkirschbaum@jfedsnj.org.
