Social Services for European Jewish Children

By Ernst Papanek

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Social Welfare, June 1948

This piece looks at issues facing European Jewish children and youth in the wake of the war and the role and use of social services to help this special population. The author highlights various developmental phases of persecution, which include the hope to survive, hopelessness and despair, and the resistance against psychic and emotional destruction. The piece concludes by proposing services that could be given to the children, which should include group treatment with the stated goal of reviving community life.
