Children of Holocaust survivors frequently point out problems associated with having been raised by survivor parents. However, large-scale studies demonstrate that both Holocaust survivors and their children function within the normal range. This study addresses relationship issues between the younger survivors and their children. It does not compare them with nonsurvivor families, who may exhibit similar patterns. We found wide gaps between how child survivor parents and their children viewed parental expectations and behaviors. These discrepancies are described as 4 paradoxes.
