Growing up in the Holocaust culture

J. S. Kestenberg, Y. Gampel

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The survivors who spent much of their early childhood in the Nazi culture of organized persecution and isolation, had to create a new social and psychological identity in the post Holocaust culture. They not only had to cope with the scars of past wounds, but also had to create new structures and techniques for membership in a normal family and community. These new structures were necessary to make communication in the new culture possible.
