Family dynamics as perceived by the second generation of Holocaust survivors / by Mark Furshpan.
Children of Holocaust survivors were studied for effects of parental trauma on family life. Two instruments, The Family Adaptability and Cohesion Scales (revised), and the Family Structure Profile were used to measure perceived family characteristics. There were two children of survivor groups; concentration camp and hiding, and a control group from a nonclinical sample. A 2 x 3 generalized randomized blocks design was used (sex x group). Nine hypotheses were tested regarding expected survivor family pathology. None of the hypotheses received support. The survivor family syndrome was questioned for the majority of survivor families. Criticism of previous research and implications for further research were addressed.
