Jewish Genealogical Society Of NY Plans Virtual Event

The Jewish Genealogical Society of New York invites members of the public to their next program, featuring Judith Greenberg speaking on “Cypora’s Echo—Mothers, Daughters and a Holocaust Legacy.” The program will be held Sunday, December 19, at 2 p.m. on Zoom.

Judith Greenberg had been writing and teaching about trauma, literature and women’s acts of resistance for years before she discovered that the history of the last days of the Jews of Siedlce, Poland, her family’s ancestral hometown, was recorded by her own relative, Cypora Jablon Zonszajn, her grandfather’s first cousin.

Judith Greenberg holds a Ph.D. in comparative literature from Yale University and teaches as a part-time faculty member at the Gallatin School of Individualized Study at New York University. She is the editor of “Trauma at Home: After 9/11” (University of Nebraska Press, 2003) and author of articles on works by Virginia Woolf, Patrick Modiano and Charlotte Delbo, among others. She plans to publish her manuscript, “Cypora’s Echo,” which is based on her cousin’s story and is about intergenerational transmission of trauma.
