Speaker: Eva Hoffman, writer and academic

As the Holocaust recedes in time, the guardianship of its legacy is being passed on from its survivors and witnesses to the next generation. How should they, in turn, convey its knowledge to others? What are the effects of a traumatic past on its inheritors? And what are the second generation’s responsibilities to its received memories? Eva Hoffman – a child of Polish Jews who survived the Holocaust, but whose entire families perished – explores through personal reflections, and considering historical, psychological, and moral implications of the second-generation experience.
