What does it mean to be the grandchild of a Holocaust survivor? Many in the third generation have been influenced by the experiences of their grandparents in both overt and hidden ways. These influences touch everything from sense of self to their work as writers. In this panel discussion moderated by Jewish Currents’ Arielle Angel, authors Linda Kinstler, Menachem Kaiser, and Helen Betya Rubinstein will discuss their experiences and work.

Menachem Kaiser is the author of the memoir Plunder, a New York Times Critics Best Book of 2021, and the winner of the 2022 Sami Rohr Prize for Jewish Literature.
