Psychosocial Effects of the Holocaust on Aging Survivors and Their Families

By Lucy Y. Steinitz

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), June 1984

Some clinicians argue that the traditional views of psychological health and illness should not be applied to aged Holocaust survivors. They place survivors in a special category of people who, having challenged the void and asserted the positive presence of life after the Holocaust, render meaningless any conventional judgments of "good" or "bad" psychological adjustment. In Journal of Jewish Communal Service, 60: 4.
