The United Nations Department of Public Information is hosting a special multimedia event on Wednesday April 11 2018 from 10:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. The event will feature Michel Kichka presenting his book entitled “Second Generation – Things I Didn’t Tell My Father”.
Michel Kichka is an award winning, Belgian-born, Israeli cartoonist and illustrator who has written and illustrated a spectacularly powerful book about his parents, his family and his own life as the child of Holocaust survivors. I have often included images from his book in my presentations about the experience of the second generation and the meaning of intergenerational transmission, because pictures, especially his, speak louder than a thousand words. His poignant narrative and illustrated book has a very special place in my heart. I wholeheartedly recommend that those whose lives were so intimately colored by our parents or grandparents’ experiences during the Holocaust attend this unique opportunity.
