Anita Lasker-Wallfisch and Maya Jacobs-Wallfisch on Transgenerational Trauma

This is a talk about transgenerational trauma between Anita Lasker-Wallfisch, her daughter Maya Jacobs-Wallfisch and Thomas Hübl. Anita Lasker-Wallfisch (92) is a German-British cellist and one of the last-known survivors of the “Girls’ Orchestra” of Auschwitz. Maya Jacobs-Wallfisch has a particular interest in transgenerational trauma arising from her subjective experience of being the daughter of a holocaust surviver. She is Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist and co-founder of the “Forum for Transgenerational Trauma” in the UK. Thanks to Anita Lasker-Wallfisch and Maya Jacobs-Wallfisch for sharing so open-heartedly and generously their memories, and their experience of a special relationship, which is very valuable, instructive and salutary for us all!
