The mental and physical health of the Holocaust-survivors has interested many researchers around the world. Inspite of the assumption that the survivors are prone to develop premature morbidities (based on parallel findings among disabled people or people who survived severe trauma), apparently, excessive morbidity was significantly found only in two areas: malignancy and skeletal disorders. Survivors should ultimately benefit from broad and sincere assistance in social, economic, mental and medical issues.
