Keynote speaker and guest of the SAJBD at this year’s Yom Hashoah Commemoration, ‘The Voice of the Survivors’ was Dr Nathan Durst, a noted clinical and academic psychologist and leading figure in the fields of Holocaust survivor counselling and research in Israel. Nathan, a Holocaust Survivor, shared his testimony during the moving ceremony.
Dr Durst’s public lectures and talks to specific interest groups were extremely well attended. Survivors, second and third generation survivors and descendants of European refugees, academics and members of the public turned out to hear him speak.
Over 100 people attended a lecture on 13 April 2010 where Nathan Durst addressed Second Generation Holocaust Survivors and descendants of European Refugees of the Holocaust.
Israeli ambassador, Dov Segev-Steinberg, a second generation survivor also addressed the audience.
The term’ second generation’ refers to the children of Holocaust survivors and describes the experiences of the second generation and the impact of the Holocaust on the children of survivors. A special interest group will be launched in the near future.
