New Study for Children and Grandchildren of Holocaust Survivors

Dr. Yael Danieli, co-founder and director of the Group Project for Holocaust Survivors and Their Children in New York City, has developed a new comprehensive questionnaire that attempts to help better understand how families have been affected by the Holocaust.  Children and grandchildren of survivors who are at least 18 years old are invited to participate in this important study by completing the questionnaire.  The questionnaire is available in English and in Hebrew.  For more information and to participate in the study, please go to

This research project is supported by grants from the Conference of Jewish Material Claims Against Germany and from the Anti-Defamation League.


  1. Thanks for posting this. I was involved in a children of survivors of the Holocaust therapy group in the late 1970s that Yael Danielli was affiliated with too -- I can't recall how, precisely. Our group became the basis for the book Children of the Holocaust by Helen Epstein. It'll be nice to reconnect with her -- I'd like to find out what happened to the therapist who ran the group (and who was my private therapist). I suspect she's no longer with us.

  2. I'm glad I could help you try to reconnect.

  3. The TTTRS study will start in the Netherlands focusing on the medical impact of the Holocaust on three generations
