Elizabeth Rosner: Survivor Cafe

Elizabeth Rosner, author of Survivor Cafe: The Legacy of Trauma and the Labyrinth of Memory, in conversation with host Richard Wolinsky.

Elizabeth Rosner, the author of three novels and one poetry/prose collection, discusses her latest book, Survivor Cafe, which deals with trauma and its effects, both direct and indirect. The daughter of Holocaust survivors, she examines the effects of war and other tragedies on the psyche, and how those effects can be passed down, generation to generation.

In this interview, she talks not only about the Holocaust, but the Killing Fields of Cambodia, the genocide in Rwanda, and the legacy of the American Civil War.
