Overview

Psychologist Weissmark (formerly of Harvard U. Medical School) brought together children of Holocaust survivors and children of Nazis in order to test their subjective experiences of the war and to see if the two groups could communicate through each other's subjective experience in order to arrive at some sort of intergenerational and intergroup sense of justice.
