Taking a different approach to the Holocaust’s lessons

Survivors’ grandchildren balance history, social settings

When Abbey Weintraub strolled into Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts one recent Sunday afternoon, she did not have paintings and sculptures in mind. Weintraub, a 28-year-old Boston resident, was part of a group of three dozen or so young Jews who went to the MFA to watch and discuss a film about a Nazi leader.

Boston 3G, the group calls itself, short for “third generation after the Holocaust.’’ Its members are grandchildren of Holocaust survivors, and for nearly 2 1/2 years they have gathered monthly to compare notes about life lessons from their grandparents, and discuss ways to teach even younger generations about the Holocaust. In December the group will begin partnering with Facing History and Ourselves, an international antidiscrimination group, to bring Holocaust history and antibullying lessons to classrooms.
