Can suffering be passed down through generations? Can our loves and fears be a reflection of ancestral memory? Is multi-generational trauma real?
A former neo-Nazi who uncovered her Jewish heritage and converted to Judaism, Elisa’s powerful story of loss, remembrance and belonging begins with a heartfelt exploration of her family’s roots and the haunting journey to Eastern Europe that changed everything.
By exploring her parents’ and ancestors’ painful pasts, she tells a personal story of both hardship and triumph, suffering and courage, and what one person can do to really make a difference and become a voice for those who no longer have one.
In this thought-provoking presentation, Elisa also examines the strong case for genetic memory and epigenetics by detailing the latest cutting-edge biological research and looks at how trauma can be inherited and passed down through future generations. She shares personal stories from around the world that involve real-life cases of serendipity, intergenerational trauma and the recollection of ancestral memories that defy time and space.
