Newcomers' accomplishments II : Hidden children and Holocaust survivors / A. Robert Neurath.

Publication | Library Call Number: DS134 .N4872 2016

Testimonies provided by Holocaust survivors usually emphasize the terrible experiences endured during World War II in Nazi-occupied European countries. This might have been encouraged by interviewers. There has been little, if any, positive repercussion from surviving and starting a "new life," mostly in another country. Accordingly, a tendency to emphasize negativity has mostly prevailed. Favorable attributes, including determination, aspirations, ability to prioritize, willingness for change, self-reliance, readiness to collaborate with and trust others, appreciating new opportunities - all prerequisites for success in a new environment - have received much less attention. Instead, traumatization for "never forgetting" has dominated. Attending to the terrible ramifications of the Holocaust does not require that it be treated forever as a current fact of life. To honor professional success, we selected achievers in sciences, visual and performing arts, literature, business, sports and foreign affairs from lists of survivors' names (relevant to Slovakia; accessible at Yad Vashem [Israel] and the University of Southern California Shoah Foundation) by looking for additional information linked to each name. Results of this comprehensive research are described herein. - From back cover.
