Dr. Nurit Fischer-Shemer, of the UB School of Social Work, will present the results from her study about the inter-generational long-term effects of the Holocaust on the children of Survivors.
As partial work to complete her PhD in Social Welfare, Nurit interviewed children of Holocaust Survivors in the WNY area during the last three years. The data collected expanded the knowledge about the experiences of growing up with a Survivor parent or parents, and to better understand the implications of the loss and grief sentiments combined with the adaptation and resilience of the offspring. The results of the study will be presented in a community talk at the JCC Benderson building February 10th at 2:00pm in the Lippman Lounge. RSVP to the Holocaust Resource Center at 716-634-9535. This presentation is open to the public
