Transcript of Life after the Holocaust

Life after the Holocaust... "What happened is in many cases a lasting drama, one that we will take to our graves." Young children did not know thier real names or had forgotten them and they didn't know their foster parents weren't thier biological parents. In interviews with the hidden children in two-thirds of the cases that the damaged realtionship was never repaired. Thosands died of malnutrion and disease even after Allied troops arrived. The worst consequence was the disintegration of the family especially the separation of children from their parents. Only a small percentage of parents were reuntied with their children after 1945. Most of the surviving children had no family and the teenagers amoung them often had no place to go. When the child was finally found, the parents had to prove that the child was theirs and sometimes, the parents themselves had doubts. The most effected by the holocaust in their later ability to love were the children who were toddlers when they were given away and those who had many hiding places.

They fiercely resisted the seperation from their foster parents. When taken to their real home, they would yearn for their foster parents for years. As for the parents, they had survived the war but they now needed to survive the peace. Between 1945 and 1952, an estimated 80,000 holocaust survivors immigrated to the U.S. Neither the survivors nor the troops, many of whom were tramatized by what they had seen, received help that would help their psychological well-being. Those who went back to their own countries frequently discovered that their homes were occupied by other people and that their belongings were gone. The troops brought immediate aid to the survivors in terrible conditions and at great risk to themselves. Other countries where Jews found new homes were France , Canada, Great Britain, and Israel. The two contries receiving the largest numbers of emigre's were the United States and Israel. "I felt crippled. It is indescribable; those who did not experience it cannot possibly understand - to be so powerless."
- Holocaust Survivor. "So, for many, the happy life at the end of the nightmare did not come to pass." Presented to you by:
