Can Holocaust Trauma Be Inherited? 
The Complex Genetic Legacy of the Second Generation

Adoption fostering home

A lecture presentation by 

Linda F. Burghardt, Ph.D.
Scholar-in-Residence at HMTC

Wednesday, October 26, 2016, at 11 a.m.

HMTC
Welwyn Preserve, 100 Crescent Beach Road
Glen Cove, NY 11542

Psychologists have long known that the profound legacy of loss and suffering experience by Holocaust Survivors deeply affects their children. Now biologists are saying that genetics can play an even larger role in transmitting this trauma to the next generation. Dr. Burghardt will describe the science behind these claims and explain how this genetic legacy can have far-reaching consequences for the children of survivors – and their own offspring.

Dr. Burghardt is a journalist and author from Great Neck, NY. She worked as a freelance reporter for The New York Times for 20 years and is the author of three non-fiction books. Her articles and essays have appeared in newspapers across the United States and she has lectured to both national and international audiences. She holds a Ph.D. from LIU Post and is the daughter of Holocaust Survivors from Vienna.

Admission is free for this lecture. For more information call (516) 571-8040.
