A videotape of my lecture at the Eighteenth Annual Fanya Gottesfeld Heller Conference is now available online on my Youtube channel, or by directly following this link. The video can also be found at this link to the Youtube channel of the Museum of Jewish Heritage.
This lecture, entitled “Defying Evil: Child and Adolescent Survivors of the Holocaust”, focused on the unique experiences of the child and adolescent survivors of the Holocaust.
My lecture, geared toward teachers, sought to make the connection between those who were exposed to the trauma of the Holocaust at such a young age and the youth they teach today, bringing lessons about trauma and resilience closer to the experiences of teachers and students. This lecture was part of a series of annual conferences for educators sponsored by Fanya Gottesfeld Heller.
