Breaking the silence the generation after the Holocaust.

Publication | Library Call Number: DVD-0293

The Holocaust created a legacy of trauma and pain, not only for those who experienced its horror, but for their children as well. This documentary tells a story of personal growth as the children of Holocaust survivors confront their inheritance of pain and overcome the silent barriers that separate them from their parents. As the parents and children reach out to each other, the second generation discovers its own voice and grapples with the question of teaching the Holocaust to their own children. By interweaving poignant dialogues with commmentaries by Dr. Robert Jay Lifton, Professor Moshe Waldoks, and Professor Helen Epstein, Breaking the silence sensitively dipicts this healing encounter between the two generations.
