We were happy to see everyone at our Third Annual Intergenerational Brunch. It was a beautiful day, with so many of all generations meeting, connecting and commemorating their family history.
The event featured a presentation by 3GNY’s leadership, and guest speaker Amira Kohn-Trattner, C.S.W Amira is an Israeli-born psychotherapist/psychoanalyst in private practice in New York. Amira works with individuals and couples and has extensive experience with survivors, 2nd and 3rd generation.
She has been a consultant to the German government in restitution cases as an advocate to survivors and volunteered at international conferences for the US Holocaust Museum and the Shoah Foundation.
Amira presented an excerpt from her forthcoming documentary film about an unusual small group of Holocaust survivors from Czechoslovakia, who emigrated to South America after the war. The film explores the lives of these close, life-long friends and the new threat they face.
