Julie Kohner is the daughter of a Holocaust survivor and founder of the Holocaust educational program Voices of the
Generations. She’ll talk about her work to preserve the stories of survivors, and share a videos of her mother’s groundbreaking 1953 appearance on the television show “This is Your Life.”
Voices of the Generations, Inc., is a non-profit organization with a mission to bear witness as a second generation. Writes Kohner: “In as little as ten years there may no longer be a Holocaust survivor to share their stories in person. As a way of remembering it is important not to forget how the human race has allowed injustice and depravation to target specific ethnic or religious peoples. If we look back into our own past, it is possible to find that such discrimination has come into our lives or the lives of our families.”
Kohner conducted interviews with survivors whose experiences paralleled her mother’s story of survival. As a result, Julie has become the voice of her parents, and of the survivors who shared her parents’ story, for future generations.
