PROGRAM 1: Hidden Child Survivors – A Unique Group | Sunday, March 6, 2022 at 12 – 1 PM Central Time
How have your experiences as a Hidden Child during the Holocaust affected your life? This segment will open with a brief presentation by Dr. Felsen. Hidden Child survivors will be invited to share their personal perspective on the way their experiences affected them at different phases in life.

We encourage participants to watch a recording of Dr. Robert Krell, M.D., in conversation with Dr. Felsen prior to this March 6 meeting. The recording will be made available ahead of time. Dr. Krell was a young Hidden Child during the Holocaust. He later became a psychiatrist, a child psychiatrist, and a professor of psychiatry at the University of British Columbia. He has been an advocate for Holocaust survivors, families, and Holocaust education for many decades, for which he was awarded the Order of Canada.

What would you like future generations to know about the children who were hidden during the Holocaust? What would you include in your ‘ethical will’? What would you like your personal legacy to your family or others include? Dr. Felsen will discuss briefly the shaping of the memory of the Holocaust for future generations in one’s own family and in general. Are there moral lessons that should be taken from the Holocaust that Hidden Child survivors wish to pass on to future generations?
