Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The present study compared concentration camp survivors and controls from the same ethnic and religious background on two variables: guilt feelings in everyday life and locus of control. No significant differences were found between survivors and controls. As for sex differences, it was found that women expressed significantly more guilt than men in “behaviors contrary to moral or ethical principles” and men were significantly more internal than women. The implications of these findings were discussed.
