Most chil­dren of Holo­caust sur­vivors felt the omnipres­ence of the Holo­caust through­out their child­hood and, for many, the echoes of the Holo­caust con­tin­ue to loom large through the phe­nom­e­non of inter­gen­er­a­tional” trauma.

In a series of vivid, emo­tion­al – and some­times gut-wrench­ing – sto­ries, Emi­ly Wan­der­er Cohen con­nects the dots between her behav­iors and choic­es and her moth­er’s Holo­caust expe­ri­ences. She illus­trates how the Holo­caust con­tin­ues to have an impact on cur­rent and future gen­er­a­tions, and with prompts at the end of each chap­ter, you can explore your own inter­gen­er­a­tional trau­ma and begin your heal­ing journey.

Part mem­oir and part self-dis­cov­ery, if you’re a sec­ond-gen­er­a­tion (2G) or third-gen­er­a­tion (3G) Holo­caust sur­vivor – or if you’re expe­ri­enc­ing inter­gen­er­a­tional trau­ma of any kind – and you’re ready to heal, you need to read this book.
