Journal of Social Work and Policy in Israel. V-Vi (Special Issue), 1992: Unconscious Derivations of the Nazi Language in the Children of the Nazi Generation. Dieter Ohlmeier. Pp. 61-69.

Martin Wangh

Ohlmeier calls attention to the fact that despite the present repudiation of Nazism, many of the terms coined at the period of Nazi domination have entered present-day speech, for instance, "Endlösung" (final solution). He goes further and believes that prefixes like "be-" or "durch-," which have a passive or a forceful, active connotation, are more frequently used now than formerly. When one makes a patient conscious of this usage, the patient is likely to become angry and often quits the analysis. Ohlmeier thinks that this is due to the fact that the second and third post-Nazi generations are still highly sensitive to any interpretation of their aggressiveness or passivity. The patient feels that such passive or aggressive impulses must be discharged by immediate action, and therefore takes flight from the analysis.
