Intimacy and Family Links of Adults Who Were Children During the Shoah: Multi-Faceted Mutations of the Traumatic Encapsulations

Yolanda Gampel and Aviva Mazor, Ph.D.

The lack of child survivors' symbolizations of intimate and family links is not limited only to memories of their traumatic past. Their inability to symbolize intimate love and couple relationships that have been created during their adult life span is manifested in psychoanalytical and psychotherapeutic treatments, interviews, and qualitative studies. Using comparative sources of massive social trauma as well as clinical examples leads us to suggest certain mutations that appear during adulthood. The real, psychic holes, and interjects are some of the terms used to explain the manifestations that evolve from numbing and frozen parental images of the traumatic past. These processes gain further meanings in their functioning in the child survivors' adult relations.
