Hantman, Solomon, and Prager present the only quantitative empirical research in this volume. Around the world we watched Israelis drill for poison gas, and then endure the unpredictable explosions of SCUD attacks. This must have elicited horrible memories of the Second World War for many aged. The authors herein report that aged Holocaust survivors differed in their reactions to the Gulf War. Those who had experienced prior war-related events were more vulnerable to stress.
