Examining Questions of Identity in Second Generation Survivors of the Holocaust. This workshop aims to bring light to the entangled and challenging identities of second generation Holocaust survivors by examining their words and art. The first generation (witnesses) who survived the Holocaust almost had their individual identities robbed from them and were often not given the chance to reclaim it after the Second World War ended. The second generation — the children of these witnesses — therefore often took up the task of redefining their own identities; mixtures of cultures, places and histories. This workshop will examine expressions of these identities with the aim to bring awareness to the process of healing and the personal questions which are sometimes left unanswered in the post-generation(s).
