Writing workshop for children of survivors

Writing workshop for children of survivors

THE DREW UNIVERSITY Center for Holocaust/Genocide Study will offer a series of writing workshops for children of Holocaust survivors on six consecutive Mondays, beginning Oct. 8.

As the population of survivors decreases, the responsibility of remembrance passes to the next generation. The workshops will guide descendants of survivors to record their memories and what they believe future generations will want to know about “life after the Holocaust” from the perspective of those who grew up with people who had lived it.

The workshops will take place on the Drew campus in Madison. No writing experience is required. The Oct. 8 workshop will run from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. and will include lunch; all subsequent meetings will be 1-3 p.m. There is no fee but a commitment to all six sessions is expected. To register, contact center director emerita Ann Saltzman at asaltzma@drew.edu.
