How do you begin again when the life you have known is destroyed? What does resilience mean for survivors of profound trauma, dislocation and the violent death of loved ones? For immigrants fleeing political oppression and genocide, the commitment to begin a new life in America involves radical choices about who they intend to become and how to carry and honor memory. 

In this panel discussion moderated by Claudia Kolker, recent immigrants and survivors of the Holocaust will reflect on the material, psychological and spiritual choices they made as they created new lives.

Kolker is a journalist and author of The Immigrant Advantage: What we can Learn from Newcomers to America about Health, Happiness and Hope. This program is cosponsored with The Jung Center.
