At least sixty-six first and second-generation female psychoanalysts emigrated to the U.S. as Nazism came to dominate Europe. In Vienna, Berlin, Zurich, and Budapest—they had been at the forefront of the psychoanalytic movement; after emigrating, they shaped the development of Freudian theory and practice in the US. Today they are at risk of falling into oblivion. This presentation revives the individual and professional biography of Judith S. Kestenberg. Using her papers, archival historical materials, and personal-history documents, the presentation will bridge gaps in present knowledge on Kestenberg’s familial, religious, political, and professional backgrounds, and map her complex multiple identity as a Jewish New Woman of her milieu, a pioneer of psychoanalysis, German-speaking emigrant, daughter of Shoah victims, and mother. The main focus is on the shift Kestenberg made from resenting the traumatic experiences to devoting her work to Holocaust studies. By bringing attention to oral histories—an approach that remains quite new and underexplored, this woman’s voice will be heard.

Learning Objectives: After attending the presentation, participants will be able to
– Discuss the complex multiple identities of the first women psychoanalysts who emigrated to the US, using Judith S. Kestenberg as an example.
– Describe the contribution of Judith S. Kestenberg to the history of American psychoanalysis, Holocaust and memory studies.
