Abstract

Temporal aspects were evaluated in 44 Nazi concentration camp survivors and 31 control subjects, all 50–60 years old. The survivors attached to the Holocaust a more intense role within time orientation; they were more past‐oriented, less future‐oriented, and had a generally more pessimistic attitude toward life events. Implications of the findings are discussed, with emphasis on the role of time orientation in the long‐term effects of the Holocaust on survivors. 1985 American Orthopsychiatric Association
