Strong at the Broken Places: Diverse Voices from the Second Generation

By Susan J. Bendor

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), Spring 2008

The intergenerational transmission of trauma has been explored in more than 400 articles without arriving at reliable, valid findings that can be generalized to the large group of children of Holocaust survivors known as the Second Generation, the author explains. She provides a critical review of the literature and offers a balanced view of the lives of survivors and their adult offspring. Through a synthesis of professional and personal knowledge and experience, the article explores the strengths perspective and cognitive theory as a means of reframing oneĆ¢??s experience from being a victim to being a victor.
