WHAT: Dr. Jill Klein and Gene Klein are hosting a free, public speaking engagement on the concepts of resilience and survivor psychology. Dr. Klein and Gene will discuss (or can discuss in an interview or article before or after the event): the Klein family’s harrowing experience at Auschwitz; the effects of unchecked bigotry and political upheaval; survivor psychology and Gene’s coping strategies; and how to model and apply resilience in leadership roles today.
WHO: Gene Klein was born in Czechoslovakia in 1928. In 1944, at the age of 16, he was deported with his family to Auschwitz and, shortly afterwards, transferred to a slave labor camp in Poland. Gene’s daughter, Dr. Jill Klein, earned a doctorate in social psychology from the University of Michigan. Dr. Klein and her father lead executive sessions and speaking engagements all over the world, where they combine Gene’s experience with Dr. Klein’s expertise to explore the concepts of resilience and survival. WHEN: Sunday, March 9 at 12:45 PM – 2:30 PM EASTERN (set up begins at 12:15 PM)
WHERE: Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Miami – 7701 SW 76th Avenue, Miami FL 33143
