My guest today is holocaust survivor and author, Dr. Edith Eger. At 93-years-old, Edith is one of the very few remaining Holocaust survivors old enough to remember life at the concentration camps. Now as a clinical psychologist, she’s processed her life trauma and shows us all how to stop being victims in our own lives in her book “The Gift”. I’ve compiled questions from my Jewish friends to ask Edith for this special podcast episode!
The 5 questions I ask in this episode:
- Jenn Sutton: A recent study found that 23% of young Americans believe the Holocaust is a myth or the death toll is exaggerated and 11% think Jewish people caused the holocaust. What is the best way to teach forthcoming generations about the Holocaust in order to change these numbers?
- JR Rothstein: What obligation do young Jews have in preserving Jewish culture, heritage, and history in light of the Holocaust?
- Katie Sanders: What’s something you’ve learned in your life that you’d like to pass on to future generations?
- Sasha Kopp: How have you coped with uncertainty amidst our current societal issues and what advice do you have to others who are overwhelmed right now?
- Dan Schawbel: What is your best piece of career advice?
