A Conversation with Menachem Rosensaft about The Second Generation

Hosted By: The Museum of Jewish Heritage-- A Living Memorial to the Holocaust

New York lawyer and Jewish community leader Menachem Z. Rosensaft traces his activism back to his roots. Born in the Displaced Persons camp in Bergen-Belsen, Germany, to parents who survived the Holocaust, he has taken the lessons of his family’s experience with him through four terms on the United States Holocaust Memorial Council, his presidency of Park Avenue Synagogue in Manhattan, his teaching about the law of genocide at the law schools of Columbia and Cornell Universities, and his career as an international litigator, culminating in his current role as General Counsel and Associate Executive Vice President of the World Jewish Congress.

Rosensaft has become a leading voice among children of Holocaust survivors, founding the International Network of Children of Jewish Holocaust Survivors and authoring and editing several books, including most recently Poems Born in Bergen-Belsen, published in 2021 by Kelsay Books.

Join Rosensaft and Ellen Bachner Greenberg, founder of Descendants of Holocaust Survivors (2G Greater New York), for a conversation about Rosensaft’s life and legacy and the questions he faces today. This program is co-presented by the Museum of Jewish Heritage and Descendants of Holocaust Survivors.
