Riassunto: This work looks at the traumatic effects of genocidal persecution on the child's psychic structure and on development through the life cycle. It offers information to clinicians working with Holocaust survivors and their families and should serve as a guide for therapists and interested readers who want to learn more about the short- and long-term effects of genocidal persecution. The authors have combined their early findings, based on over 1500 interviews with Holocaust survivors from all over the world, to create this volume. Through case vignettes and life histories, this book offers historical information on the Holocaust itself, the overall plight of children, superego development, and the role often played by transitional phenomena in mastering the attendant trauma and object loss. Special attention is paid to the effects of the Holocaust on children who were in hiding and the experience of adolescent children, as described in the diary of an adolescent girl. The book is intended to provide a greater understanding of how the developing child can be affected by trauma associated with persecution. Even though it is essentially about the victims in one particular instance of genocide, some of the findings may be replicated in other situations.
