Holocaust Survivors/Second & Third Generation Groups
Helping survivors and their families deal with the past and cope with the present
Sensitive to the particular issues of Holocaust survivors, their children and grandchildren, WJCS offers groups that meet regularly under the guidance of a skilled professional to help people share memories, sort out the traumatic events of the past, find inner peace, and deal with the reactivation of old fears created by current events.
The Second & Third Generation Group deals with issues relating to separation and over-protectiveness. We also address issues of aging, deteriorating health, and retirement of survivors. Large countywide meetings and presentations at high schools provide community education.
Holocaust Survivors Support Groups meet monthly on Tuesday evenings, 7:00 PM
Second Generation Survivors include three groups (each meeting one Tuesday night per month), 7:00PM at WJCS Hartsdale office.
Social services for Nazi victims have been supported by a grant from the Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany.
