As is well known, traumata can be passed from one generation to the next; and hardly any other group is so affected by this phenomenon as the descendants of those persecuted by the Nazis. Yet, how exactly does this transfer take place? What role do family traditions and continued social practices play? Might genetics play a role? Furthermore, can this cycle at all be broken?
The descendants of those persecuted by the Nazis can draw on unique resources and skills. They make significant contributions to political and social confrontations with the Nazi era, and they work for the welfare of the survivors. Many are active in political education and advocate for an appropriate culture of remembrance. In a time of increasing right-wing populism, their views are indispensable.
