Lessons and Legacies in Holocaust Survivor Families
Innovations in the Investigation of Intergenerational Responses
Sep 23 2009


SAMUEL AND FLORA WEISS RESEARCH FELLOWSHIP LECTURE • MAX WEINREICH CENTER

Dr. Hannah Kliger - The Pennsylvania State University, The Abington College

Findings from the research reported in this lecture show the contribution of new methodologies for studying communication about trauma within Holocaust survivor families, to provide a more balanced profile of survivors, their children, and grandchildren. This study, based on the research of the Transcending Trauma Project, offers a more integrated view of how the trauma of the Holocaust can be an opportunity for transmitting resilience.
