Holocaust Living History Workshop: The Burden of History — A Round Table Discussion


In recent years, the experience of the so-called “second-generation” has come under increasing scholarly scrutiny. What does it mean to be the child of parents who were persecuted and often singled out for extermination? In this round-table discussion moderated by author and UC San Diego distinguished professor emeritus in the Department of Psychiatry, Joel Dimsdale, UC San Diego scholars and children of Holocaust survivors—Tal Golan, Judi Gottschalk, and Gershon Shafir – share their personal experiences and observations as second-generation Holocaust survivors.
