Elizabeth Rosner comes to The Town of Ballston Library

Healing the Wounds of History:
Understanding and Addressing Intergenerational Trauma
 
Renowned author and upstate NY native Elizabeth Rosner takes on the
complex subject of war’s long aftermath. The daughter of two Holocaust survivors,
she interweaves personal narrative with extensive research, in order to provide an
over-arching look at the multi-generational consequences of genocide and atrocities
worldwide. Incorporating scientific evidence for epigenetics, she examines
interconnections among descendants of Holocaust victims, survivors of Hiroshima
and Nagasaki, Cambodian and Vietnamese refugees, and African Americans
shadowed by the legacy of slavery and lynching — offering insights into the
urgent need for meaningful, shared dialogue about our collective task of healing.
