23: A Severe Case of Second Generation

Lizzie Doron always felt there was an invisible ghost in her life. She wasn't wrong.

Early next week we will mark Yom HaShoah, Holocaust Remembrance Day. There are just about 160,000 Holocaust survivors still living in Israel, but they are rapidly vanishing. More than forty survivors die each day. And that means that the memory of the Holocaust, and the stories we tell and hear about the Holocaust are also changing. There are fewer and fewer first-hand testimonies, and more and more tales – like our episode today – of second generation survivors.
