Dr. Daniela Schiller

On the cutting edge of neuroscience, Dr. Daniela Schiller's research explores the possibility of traumatic memories being modified or altered, including the experience of Holocaust survivors and their memories. In conversation with Dr. Elliott Malamet, Dr. Schiller, herself a daughter of a survivor, will examine the nexus between Holocaust memory and trauma, and whether specific memories can be fixed or even "erased," and the complex ethical questions surrounding such an enterprise.
