    Overview

    Summary
    This study compares children of Holocaust survivors with children of non-Holocaust survivors. All subjects are Jewish and in clinical treatment. Using four standardized scales, it was hypothesized that children of survivors: (a) are more likely than children of non-Holocaust survivor (control group) to perceive their parents as encouraging dependency and discouraging separation, (b) will have less satisfying intimate relationships than the control group, and (c) will have greater anxiety in their adult lives than the control group. While significant differences are found in all three hypotheses, one scale and two subscales did not prove to have significant findings. The findings are discussed in relation to the developmental theories of Bowlby, Mahler, and Winnicott. The instruments utilized were the Attachment History Questionnaire, The Parent Bonding Instrument, The Dyadic Adjustment Scale and the Trait Anxiety Inventory.
