Descendants of Holocaust survivors are invited to bring their survivor parents and their children to Chicago, June 30th for 3 days of an intergenerational, interactive, participatory gathering.
Examples of workshops and presentations include “Our Legacy” - a series of workshops for survivors, second and third generation discussing their role in carrying the legacy on to the future;” Faith & the Search for Meaning after the Shoah”; “Jew Hating, Action and Apathy” - a look at current events and a call to action; “Jewish Identity & Transmission to the Next Generation” - a discussion of among the generations of how Jewish Identity has been passed on; “Holocaust Education in Public and Jewish Schools”; “Memoir Writing” and many more.
The conference will feature a reunion of the One Thousand Children, more than 1,100 children who were rescued from Europe between 1934 and 1945 by private organizations such as the American Friends Service Committee and placed with American foster families. They were brought in legally but very quietly, to avoid American resistance to Jewish immigration.
