The Vanished Communal Heritage of Holocaust Survivors: Its Impact on Survivors and their Children

By Carla Lessing

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), June 1999

Holocaust survivors lost not just their families but they also lost their religious, social, and family traditions; their communities; and a rich cultural heritage. They suffered a complete break with their pre-Holocaust lives and thus lost the basic sense of security, belonging, and identity their communities had provided. Ancillary therapeutic modalities have demonstrated to be therapeutic and restorative. In Journal of Jewish Communal Service, v.75 no.4, Summer 1999.
