Artifacts of hate, hope, courage at Museum of Jewish Heritage
The Museum’s new core exhibition The Holocaust: What Hate Can Do features hundreds of mementos, artifacts and heirlooms of Long Island Holocaust survivors—including a photograph of Doris Schechter as a curly-haired 6-year-old, enjoying her first American hot dog in upstate New York shortly after arriving with her family as refugees in 1944. 


Adrift Between My Parents' Two Americas
In this New York Times article, David Treuer confronts intergenerational trauma. As the son of an Austrian immigrant who faced violence in the Holocaust and a Native American woman who was persecuted by her own country, Treuer attempts to reckon with the contradicting perceptions of the country through the dynamic between his parents.
