2:00PM - 3:30PM  

Getting Started: A Writing Workshop Exclusively for Descendants of Holocaust Survivors

Facilatated by Arielle Berger, Azrieli Holocaust Survivor Memoirs Program & Sandy lessig, Houston Holocaust Museum

As we approach the end of live first-person Holocaust accounts, the next generation is often compelled to carry on this important legacy. Join the Neuberger’s Dialogue for Descendants cohort for an informative workshop that explores how to approach and shape your family’s Holocaust narrative. This online program will help you develop a concise written history by providing thoughtful prompts and the tools necessary to begin this journey. Guidelines regarding story development and fact-checking will be provided. Please come prepared with paper and pen for a writing exercise.

Note: this is not a research workshop. Participants are encouraged to do research, in advance, so that a basic historical timeline of their parents’ story is outlined. This session includes a 30-minute Q+A following the hour-long workshop. Upon registration, you will be provided with appropriate resource suggestions for your research and be asked to fill out a form outlining your family’s story.
