Led by Lauren Granite, Centropa’s US Education Director
Four Sessions: Sept 15, Oct 13, Nov 10, Dec 8 Virtual: 7:30-8:30pm
Centropa (www.centropa.org) offers free educational resources based on their interviews with 1,200 elderly Jews in Central and Eastern European countries.

Topic: September: Introduction to Centropa; October: Kristallnacht/Kindertransport; November: Holocaust in Hungary; December: Sephardic Jews of the Balkans.


Women of the Resistance: Fierce Females
Led by Sheryl Ochayon from Yad Vashem September 22, 2020 Virtual: 12:00 - 1:00pm
Women were often at the very heart of resistance, whether spiritual, cultural, or armed. We will focus on the role of women, especially the part they played in armed resistance. This story has largely remained in the shadows or, perhaps, been overshadowed by the stories of armed resistance in the ghettos of Europe. Yet it is a story of incredible bravery exhibited by a group of Jewish girls and women. We will tell their stories.

Defeating Hitler’s Final Solution: Preserving Yiddish Culture and Language Today with Riva Ginsburg

Intergenerational Transmission
How does the experiential knowledge of an event that took place before one was born take place? How does a perspective of “dual reality” come to be represented in the lived experience of children of survivors?

Age allows greater emotional and cognitive complexity, which in turn can enhance adaptive coping. Relationships represent a powerful system for mobilizing healing and sustaining us and are a particularly important resource as we grow older.

Dr. Felsen Webinar Series
The “Dual Reality” of Trauma Survivors and their Children
Coping with a current threat through the lens of 2Gs. The unprecedented Coronavirus pandemic has changed life on the individual and collective levels for everyone across the globe and for 2Gs. It has evoked reactions associated with the Holocaust.
