- This study tested the hypothesis that the grandchildren of Holocaust survivors have a difference in their parental attachment styles than do comparisons. Additionally, it tested the hypothesis that the amount of time spent with one's survivor grandparent(s) and amount that has been directly told to them about their grandparents' Holocaust experiences will have an effect on current attachment styles. Data were collected from 31 adult Jewish grandchildren of Holocaust survivors and a comparison group of 43 adult Jewish grandchildren of non-Holocaust survivors. Results of the first analysis showed that a MANOVA found statistically significant differences in the parental attachment relationships of the grandchildren of Holocaust survivors. Results of the second analysis, using a DFA, did not show statistical significance. Practical implications and directions for future research are discussed.
