From generation to generation. What does the Holocaust mean to grandchildren of Holocaust survivors (third-generation)? Is there a responsibility for them to continue their families’ legacies? Join Hebrew University alumna Rachael Cerrotti for a discussion on the Holocaust from a 3G perspective leading up to Yom HaShoah.
