Book Talk: Researchers Remember
For descendants of Holocaust survivors who became researchers and scholars, whether they devoted their professional lives to the Holocaust or to other topics, the Holocaust often accompanies their professional lives like a shadow. The new book Researchers Remember: Research as an Arena of Memory for Descendants of Holocaust Survivors, discusses this phenomenon through the stories of 30 researchers, children and grandchildren of Holocaust survivors. It is the first book of its kind, and the Museum is pleased to host a round table discussion and book talk with editors and contributors.
Presented by Judy Tydor Baumel-Schwartz and Shmuel Refael, editors of Researchers Remember. Together with Jacqueline Heller, Dan Carter, Dorota Glowacka, Sam Juni, Abraham J. Peck, Liat Steir-Livny, Zehavit Gross, and Eva Fogelman, they will discuss how their parents’ or grandparents’ Holocaust experiences affected their personal and professional trajectories.
