Thursday, November 3, 2011, 7:30 – 9:30 pmFifth Avenue Synagogue, 5 E. 62nd Street (between Fifth & Madison) Cost: $36. 

Thank you for joining 3GNY and fellow grandchildren of survivors for a follow-up discussion with Amira Kohn-Trattner, a Licensed Certified Social Worker and leading analyst on how trauma is transmitted throughout generations. Amira continued our discussion on a very real and poignant issue surrounding all Third Generation descendants of survivors and addressed how the effects of the Holocaust can, and has, been passed down throughout generations.

Amira is an Israeli-born psychotherapist & psychoanalyst in private practice on the Upper West Side.  She has been a consultant to the German government in restitution cases as an advocate to survivors, and has volunteered at international conferences for the US Holocaust Museum and the Shoah Foundation.  Amira has extensive experience working directly with survivors as well as 2nd and 3rd generation descendants.
