What issues do the Second Generation face as they care for the First Generation, and what is the impact on the Third Generation of their parent/s becoming carers? Further details to follow.
Following on from our series of events, ‘Writing the Holocaust’, a panel of Second Generation speakers will share their experiences of how they managed to publish their writings, and provide helpful advice and tips. Merilyn Moos explored her Holocaust and anti-Nazi heritage in The Language of Silence, Breaking the Silence, Beaten but not Defeated and Anti-Nazi Germans; researching the effect of the Holocaust upon the lives of relatives was covered by Rosemary Schonfeld in Finding Relly: My Family, The Holocaust and Me, and by Nick Barlay in Scattered Ghosts, longlisted for the JQ Wingate Prize 2015. These authors will share their experiences of various publishing models, set out some of the advantages and disadvantages and answer Members’ questions.
The Zoom event will start at 6.30 p.m. BDT with access from 6.15pm.
