(IsraelNN.com) A new study shows that children of Holocaust survivors, in Israel and abroad, do not suffer from psychological problems more than other people unaffected by the Holocaust.

The study, which looked at 4,418 subjects, was carried out by researchers from Holland’s Leiden University and from the Child Development Center of Haifa University.

The study examined whether or not the trauma of the Holocaust was transferred to the second generation subjects, manifesting itself in psychopathologies or psychological illness.
