Seminar with Moshe Teller from Jewish Care London 9.10. 2018

On 9 October 2018 we organised a day seminar with Moshe Teller. Moshe Teller is an art therapist and specialist from Jewish Care, a Centre for Holocaust Survivors in London. He studied art in Israel and England. Since 1988 he has been working in the area of care focusing on mental health and the Holocaust.
The topic of the seminar was “Holocaust Awareness when Working with Holocaust Survivors and Refugees and Memories of the Refugees“. Moshe Teller gave a speech on the influence of the Holocaust on the lives of the survivors; how does Holocaust project to their everyday life in their old age and what impact does it have on their relations with their children. The participants of the workshop practiced search for solutions when providing care. They followed case studies and practiced various approaches applicable to their clients. The afternoon part of the seminar was devoted to the topic of “remembering vs. forgetting“.
The seminar was dedicated to social services workers, health care workers and psychological services workers coming from Jewish organisations and organisations taking care of Holocaust survivors. The total participation of the seminar was 30 people.
We would like to thank American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee, The Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany, The Federation of Jewish Communities in Czech Republic, The Jewish Museum in Prague and to Public Benefit Association for their support of people influenced by Holocaust.
