Within the framework of a study entitled "Researchers Remember" we are looking for researchers in all fields (not necessarily Holocaust related research) whose parents are/were Holocaust survivors. The study will examine the connection of the choice to be an academic researcher and having a "Second Generation" background.

We define "Second Generation" as anyone whose parents (either or both) experienced life under a Nazi regime, whether during the war (ghetto, camp, hiding, false papers, etc.) or during the pre-war Nazi era (1933-1939) in one of the countries under Nazi domination, and who was born after the war ended. That also includes those born in liberated Eastern Europe after the Nazi defeat there (1944-early 1945) but before the end of the war in the west.

At this point participation in the study involves filling out a very short questionnaire.

We invite anyone interested in participating to write to me at and thank them in advance. Please feel free to write me with any questions regarding the research.
