The Psychology of Jewish Displaced Persons

By Ralph Segalman

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Social Welfare, June 1947

For almost two years, the remaining Jews of Europe have been liberated from German concentration camps, forced labor and underground hiding places. During these two years, they have begun to pick up their lives where they had left off when the Nazis forcibly interrupted them. American Jewry today has little or no understanding of the Jewish Displaced Person. Never before in the history of social work has it been necessary to plan for so large a group of displaced people. Only by introduction of wholesome group life can any progress expected.
