Council for Holocaust Education – Second Generation Voices
To commemorate International Holocaust Remembrance Day, the Council for Holocaust Education, a committee of the Jewish Federation, invites you to join us on Thursday, January 27, 2022, for “Second Generation Voices,” a Q & A conversation with Alice Blue, Klara Bode, and Jim Jakubovitz, children of Holocaust survivors, as they share what it was like to grow up with parents whose early lives were lived in the shadow of the Holocaust.
With the dwindling number of Holocaust survivors growing smaller each year, the lessons of the Holocaust are in danger of being erased from our memory and, eventually, our history. The importance of these first-person accounts cannot be emphasized enough. Fortunately, however, many survivor stories have been preserved on film. And even more fortunate for those who live beyond a survivor’s physical existence, there are the second and third-generation family members to carry their parents’ and grandparents’ stories forward, keeping their legacies and the lessons of their experiences alive.
