The Second Generation (2G) has been handed a torch, passed on by an ever dwindling number of Shoah survivors. Gina’s novel, Don’t Ask, her short stories, biography and documentary all focus on this responsibility. Since 2017, she has been coaching 14 daughters of Holocaust survivors in memoir-writing, almost all from in and around DC. Despite the diversity in their ages, backgrounds, professions, and temperaments—their haunting stories all carry common threads. Hear from Gina Roitman about the second generation’s onerous responsibility to move forward and yet, still honor their parent’s stories.
