Presentation on Moral Courage During the Holocaust by Pulitzer Prize-Nominated Author and Pioneering Psychologist Eva Fogelman

Queens College Annual Kristallnacht Commemoration
Sunday, November 11, 2 pm | Goldstein Theatre

 -- Fogelman, the Daughter of Holocaust Survivors, Developed New Approaches for Counseling Survivors and Their Descendants --

The annual Queens College Kristallnacht commemoration, presented by the college’s Center for Jewish Studies and Sinai Chapels of Fresh Meadows, invites participants to recommit to combating anti-Semitism and hatred.

Eva Fogelman will deliver the keynote address on Moral Courage During the Holocaust: Implications Today. A pioneer in the development of counseling methods for Holocaust survivors and their families, Fogelman is also a Pulitzer Prize-nominated author and a contributing producer of an Academy Award-nominated documentary. 

The program, which is free and open to the public, will include a candle-lighting ceremony with Holocaust survivors and their descendants. There will also be a multicultural invocation and musical interludes, including performances by Townsend Harris High School students, and Sara Kahan, who will sing the national anthems of the United States and Israel.

Background: In aiming to be the premier community resource for Jewish intellectual endeavor in the Queens-Long Island area, the Center for Jewish Studies at Queens College has become one of the best-known in the country. Through its outreach and research exploring the more than three millennia of Jewish civilization, the center bridges the college’s academic Jewish studies program and the community. Its attractive educational and spirited cultural programs on campus—lectures, symposia, conferences, film festivals, and artistic performances—are open to the public, most at no cost.

Sinai Chapels of Fresh Meadows, Queens, is a funeral home serving New York’s Jewish community for four generations. It is owned and operated by Michael Resnick and his family. The Resnick family and Sinai Chapels are proud to support the Jewish Studies Program at Queens College and this special Kristallnacht commemoration.

About Eva Fogelman
Born in a displaced persons camp in Kassel, Germany, to Holocaust survivors, Eva Fogelman is a renowned psychologist, author, and filmmaker, and a pioneer in treating the psychological effects of the Holocaust on survivors and their descendants. She is the author of the Pulitzer Prize-nominated book Conscience and Courage: Rescuers of Jews During the Holocaust, which explored the psychology and history of the people who defied German law during the Third Reich, and co-editor of Children During the Nazi Reign: Psychological Perspectives on the Interview Process. Fogelman wrote and coproduced the award-winning documentary Breaking the Silence: The Generation After the Holocaust and was a contributing producer of the Academy Award-nominated documentary Liberators: Fighting on Two Fronts in World War II.

One of the first psychotherapists to lead counseling groups for the children of Holocaust survivors, Fogelman established the first such group at the counseling center at The Hebrew University in Jerusalem. As a research associate at that university, she compared Holocaust survivor families with control groups. At Brandeis University, she conducted more extensive research on the second generation of Holocaust survivor families and organized the First International Conference on Children of Holocaust Survivors in 1979 in New York City.

Together with Rabbi Harold Schulweis, Fogelman founded the Jewish Foundation for Christian Rescuers. Originally an Anti-Defamation League project, it is now known as the Jewish Foundation for the Righteous. She has written for professional and popular publications and serves on the board for the American Gathering and Federation of Jewish Holocaust Survivors and Their Descendants; Hadassah Women’s Study Center at Brandeis University; Counseling Center for Women in Israel; Volunteer Training Institute for Mental Health, Child Development Research; and Hidden Child Foundation (Anti-Defamation League), among others.

Fogelman earned a bachelor’s degree in psychology from Brooklyn College and a master’s degree from New York University in rehabilitation counseling. She received advanced training in family therapy at the Boston Family Institute and psychoanalytic/psychotherapy training at Boston University Medical School. She earned her PhD from the CUNY Graduate Center in social/personality psychology. Her doctoral dissertation was entitled The Rescuers: A Socio-psychological Study of Altruistic Behavior During the Nazi Era.
