“The Ones Who Remember: Second-Generation Voices of the Holocaust” Panel Discussion
October 12 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
“The Ones Who Remember: Second-Generation Voices of the Holocaust” Panel Discussion with Authors Ava Adler, Rita Benn, Joy Wolfe Ensor, and Ruth Finkel Wade Wednesday, October 12 at 6:30 pm In-person at The FHM.
“The Ones Who Remember: Second-Generation Voices of the Holocaust” provides a window into the experiences of 16 different families grappling with the legacy of genocide. Each author reveals the many ways their parents’ Holocaust traumas and survival seeped into their souls and then affected their subsequent family lives – whether they knew the bulk of their parents’ stories or nothing at all. Despite the diversity of each family’s history and journey of discovery, the intimacy of the collective narratives reveals a common arc from suffering to resilience across the generations.
This book offers a vision of a shared humanity against the background of inherited trauma that is relatable to anyone who grew up in the shadow of their parents’ pain.
