NEW AMERICANS MUSEUM via ZOOM—In a time of unknowns during the Covid-19 pandemic, hear from Holocaust survivor, trauma expert and NY times best selling author Dr. Eger about her story of survival and resilience and her strategies for coping through uncertain times.
Dr. Edith Eger was 16 when she and her family were sent to the concentration camp Auschwitz. Born in Hungary and now 91 and living in La Jolla, Dr. Edger wrote her international bestselling book The Choice: Embrace the Possible at 90. Dr. Eger is a prolific author and a member of several professional associations. She has a clinical practice in La Jolla, California and holds a faculty appointment at the University of California, San Diego. She has appeared on numerous television programs including CNN and the Oprah Winfrey Show; and was the primary subject of a holocaust documentary that appeared on Dutch National Television. She is frequently invited to speaking engagements throughout the United States and abroad.
You can see her most recent appearance on Oprah’s Oprah Talks COIVD 19, Season 1 Episode 6 on Apple TV+.
“I’ll be forever changed by Dr. Eger’s story…The Choice is a reminder of what courage looks
like in the worst of times and that we all have the ability to pay attention to what we’ve lost,
or to pay attention to what we still have.”—Oprah
