Transforming the Legacy of Intergenerational Trauma, with Elizabeth Rosner

Berkeley, CA

This presentation blends Rosner’s personal history as a daughter of two Holocaust survivors with her extensive research into intergenerational trauma and its potential healing. Drawing on recent evidence from scientific studies of epigenetics, she will describe second- and third-generational survivors’ symptoms of anxiety, depression, and hypervigilance, plus the tendency toward silence, dissociation, and feeling burdened. Her latest book, Survivor Café: The Legacy of Trauma and the Labyrinth of Memory, recounts this legacy as it has manifested among Holocaust descendants as well as those in Cambodia, Rwanda, Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and descendants of formerly enslaved people in this country. Rosner will emphasize the value and import of acknowledgement and rectification at the collective level, giving examples of memorials and museums, ceremonies and conferences taking place today, where both the horrors and heroism can be named and shared.
