Presented By: The Holocaust Living History Workshop

Halina Olomucki’s “Portrait of a Woman” Warsaw, after 1945

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 UC San Diego historian Deborah Hertz, 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.

This event is free and open to the public. No RSVP required.

About the Holocaust Living History Workshop

The Holocaust Living History Workshop (HLHW) aims to preserve the memories of victims and survivors of the Holocaust, by employing the USC Shoah Foundation Institute’s Visual History Archive. The HLHW uses the Archive to engage the campus and local communities in a thoughtful— and thought-provoking— dialogue on events of the Holocaust and their continued relevance in the world today. The Visual History Archive is one of the few primary resources available that describes firsthand the experiences of victims of the Holocaust.

As such, it is an exemplary teaching tool for study in a variety of disciplines, including Anthropology, Cultural Studies, Eastern European Studies, German Studies, History, Judaic Studies, Political Science, Religious Studies, and Sociology.
