This research is based on taped, personal interviews with each former victim. Their backgrounds varied as to country of origin, size of family, economic resources, education of parents, and length and type of incarceration. Many common denominators emerged concerning their strategies for survival. As well as the stories of the ten survivors, the volume includes a Questionnaire for Holocaust Survivors. This research provides insights into early traumatization, and will prove useful to scholars in the disciplines of Holocaust studies, women's studies, psychology, sociology, law enforcement, gerontology, history and humanities.
