Significance of the Nazi Holocaust and its impact on caregiving relations of female kin and their aged relatives / Jacqueline Fabian.
The significance of the Nazi Holocaust and its impact on caregiving relations of female kin and their aged relatives has not previously been the focus of formal research. The recorded commentary of women who care for a population that has undergone massive trauma provides knowledge of the breadth of post traumatic stress. This thesis is a qualitative, exploratory study which examines in-depth, the experiences of eight women who have been involved in the provision of care to aged survivors of genocidal trauma. The findings have been broken down as follows: (1) Cumulative effects of trauma: reintegration into society, marital issues, parenting issues, death of a spouse and aging and survivorship; and, (2) Caring and the second-generational impact of trauma: rationale for care, nature of the care, consequences of caring and coping strategies. The conclusions examine the impact issues of both survivors and their female kin. The need for new practice approaches is addressed with recommendations for future research.
