HIListically Speaking Podcast with Hilary Russo

When is the last time you really sat down and spoke to the older generation in your family? Whether it’s a parent, grandparent, aunt or uncle, we can learn a lot about our lineage if we take time to listen. The trouble is, many families (if not all) face some type of ancestral trauma. And talking about history can stir up major upsets. Sometimes it can even leave family members feeling disconnected and damaged.

Kristallnacht Event: Ending Intergenerational Trauma

I was recently invited by Miriam Schulman of Shulman Art and The Inspiration Place to speak at Shaarei Tikvah of Scarsdale’s Kristallnacht Event. This special event, moderated by Miriam Schulman and led by Rabbi Baldechin, was to mark the anniversary of Kristallnacht, the 1938 night of broken glass when Nazis massively destroyed Jewish stores and synagogues, and to discuss the trauma transmitted to the children and grandchildren of survivors.


As a daughter of Holocaust survivors, I was honored to speak at the event along with Christina Heike of New Decision Therapy, a daughter of German WWII survivors.


Christina and I met in a networking group and connected over the fact that we both were working in trauma release with our clients. Overcoming initial apprehension, we developed a caring friendship, bridging the divide of our ancestors’ traumatic experience.


Ancestral trauma is a condition that can apply to descendants of any people who undergo trauma. It can not only impact parenting but also affects DNA and can be passed down throughout the generations in the form of inter-generational PTSD.  Inter-generational trauma is not just limited to victims of war, but also includes the trauma of sexual and child abuse, genocide or enslavement of a people. The study of how DNA can change is known as epigenetics.
