Intergenerational transmission of increased anxiety traits in third generation Holocaust survivors / by Michael G. Wetter

Publication | Library Call Number: RC451.4.H62 W47 1998

While much research has been conducted regarding the second generation offspring of Holocaust survivors, little, if any literature exists regarding the third generation.

A total of 34 third generation offspring were compared to a group of 40 control participants on scores from the State Trait Anxiety Inventory (A-Trait only), Beck Depression Inventory, and the Life Experiences Survey. Transgenerational familial exposure and survivorship to the Holocaust served as the independent variable. The level of reported anxiety served the dependent variable, while depression and traumatic life experiences represent the covariates of this study. The study findings suggest a significant difference between the two groups
