Psychological Aspects of the Memory of the Holocaust with Prof. Hadas Wisemann

In this course, we will focus on the study of the long-term psychological effects of the Holocaust on the survivors and their families (the 'second' and 'third' generations). Topics: Intergenerational transmission of the Holocaust trauma, intergenerational familial communication about the Holocaust, remembering and memory of the Holocaust across the generations, interpersonal relationship patterns in survivor families, vulnerability and resilience, coping patterns, the trip to Poland and Righteous Among the Nations. Students will interview survivors and/or survivors' children and/or grandchildren and will choose a research question to focus on for their final course paper or seminar paper. Course Syllabus
