Children, Grief and Loss

Join the Jewish Museum London to hear about their approach of using the collection to help children and young people explore and discuss the difficult topics of grief and loss. Based in the story of a Holocaust survivor who lost his entire family and openly spoke about this loss with children during his lifetime, this new workshop, developed in 2021 when so many children experienced loss for the first time due to Covid-19, uses items from the collection and training from Grief Encounter to help children openly discuss this mental health topic.
