The Psychoanalytic Study of the Child. XXXIII, 1978: A Double Helix: Some Determinants of the Self-Perpetuation of Nazism. Erich Simenauer. Pp. 411-425.

Michael S. Trupp

The author, a Jewish analyst practicing in Germany, notes the paradox of contemporary Germans' denunciation of their parents (and especially the parents' Nazi past) while they, the offspring, retain virulent anti-Semitic attitudes. The undoing of parental identification "in the ego" with coexistent retention of superego ideals is presented as explanatory. Possible broader applications of this mechanism throughout the sociological field are considered.
