This will be the first ever public forum addressing the
long-term effects of genocide on surviving children. An
international cadre of experts will discuss lessons
learned from the child survivors of the Holocaust and
share their knowledge with other scholars, historians,
educators, the therapeutic community, students, and
others interested in the subject. Participants will also
hear about the applications of these life lessons to help
other children who, even today, are victims of genocide.
There will be 24 unduplicated sessions in the form of
presentations and panel sessions, divided in four tracks:
historical, educational, therapeutic and general.
Keynote speakers during the forum include Abe Foxman, a
child survivor himself and national director of the
Anti-Defamation League; Dr. Robert Krell, a well-known
Holocaust scholar and psychologist working with
survivors; Dr. Richard Sezibera, the Rwandan
ambassador to the United States.
The conference will start on Sunday night October 14 and
will end late afternoon Tuesday October 16. The
conference is held under the auspices of the World
Federation of Jewish Child Survivors of the Holocaust and
is co-sponsored by Holocaust Museum Houston and Rice
713-942-8000 Ext. 104.
