As a grandchild of Holocaust survivors himself, doctoral student and psychologist Mark Yoslow is eager to uncover “what goes right” in the Third Generation, the grandchildren of survivors.

“The third generation takes great pride in being the scion for the family that survived the Holocaust,” the former New Yorker now living in California said. “The price paid is exposure to all the content and context of the Holocaust.”

Yoslow remembers the searing pain he felt as a child when he learned of his ancestors’ fate in Warsaw.
