Miami Jewish Health Systems and the Holocaust Memorial Miami Beach present an in-depth discussion on late-onset post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in Holocaust survivors with Howard Reich, author and producer of the PBS documentary Prisoner of Her Past.
Reich will screen his award-winning documentary, in which Reich discovers the source of his mother’s struggles with late-onset PTSD – her life on the run as an adolescent, fleeing the Nazis during World War II – a period of her life she previously kept hidden from her son for nearly 60 years.
Afterwards, Dr. Marc Agronin, Miami Jewish Health Systems Director of Mental Health and Clinical Services, will join Reich for an in-depth discussion on why Sonia’s past as a Holocaust survivor affects her today.
