Jews Call for Action Over “Inherited Trauma” of Millions of Grandchildren of “Holocaust Survivors”

Psychological impact of families constantly retelling stories of horrific events endured by relatives blighting lives of younger generation, says campaigner

EDITOR’S NOTE: Since Whites can only be milked for a few more years by “Holocaust survivors,” and the sons and daughters of such survivors are getting a bit long in the tooth themselves, why not skip to the horrible sufferings of the grandchildren’s generation for a new source of wealth and power? That’s Dan Glass’s idea, and it seems to be a hit. He’s not only angling for free therapy for those traumatized by grandma’s WW2 tales (as long as grandma was Jewish, natch), but he also claims these blighted darlings’ emotions justify — get this — “increased surveillance of fascist groups across Europe, supporting the Human Rights Act, and challenging anti-immigration legislation.” It’s also interesting to note how Glass himself does not look particularly Jewish, yet possesses his group’s mentality to a high degree.

JEWISH ACTIVISTS in Scotland have started a campaign to support the grandchildren of Holocaust survivors across the world, saying the trauma of the extermination camps continues to haunt the descendants of those who suffered there. (ILLUSTRATION: Dan Glass and the Never Ever Again! group wants a move away from the ‘melancholic memorialisation’ of the Holocaust, and is calling for mental health provision to treat inherited trauma.)

Dan Glass, 29, from London, said he heard constant tales of the Holocaust as he grew up, which have deeply affected him into adulthood.

“All four of my grandparents narrowly avoided the gas chambers in Auschwitz and countless of their friends met with this fate. For my father it was a daily conversation in my teens and early 20s and even though I very profoundly understood his pain, one day I had to say to him, ‘Dad, I can’t talk about this anymore.’ My father had a whole wall of books on the subject of the Holocaust — it was all he wanted to talk about, but it was so harrowing for me.”

Glass began speaking to other children and grandchildren of Holocaust survivors, initially for an academic thesis, then later as part of the group he founded Never Ever Again!, a reference to the 1948 Universal Declaration of Human Rights pledge. He said he soon realised he was not alone in being scarred by the traumatic pasts of his relatives.

“I have been privileged to hear so many stories from young people who should now be able to live with joy — but their lives are damaged and they weren’t even there,” he said.

Glass adds that other grandchildren of survivors have experienced clinical depression, anxiety, addiction and eating disorders, which they blame on the impact of their families constantly retelling stories of the horrific events their relatives endured.

Ken Feinstein, a second generation family member, whose parents were Holocaust survivors and who grew up in Boston, Lincolnshire, told of how his school teacher, who also survived, insisted children as young as eight watched documentaries on the subject.

“When kids would look away from it she would yell at them, ‘You have no right to do that. I buried my family.’ We must have been about seven or eight years old. How do you prepare children of this age for something like that? They just showed it to us and kind of traumatised us. It was definitely meant to shock us into never forgetting,” said Feinstein.

A young woman from London told Glass of how her grandmother, who was in the Dutch resistance, avoided starvation at times by digging up flower bulbs and sucking out the nutrients. The woman later developed anorexia and believes it was related to the war stories that had been passed down the line and never processed.

Trauma research about the impact of the Holocaust on subsequent generations varies; some studies conclude there is no effect of trauma two generations on, while others claim that breast milk of survivors was affected by stress hormones that impacted on the physiology of the next generation. Some in the field of epigenetics say the intergenerational effects of the Holocaust are very pronounced and that the atrocities altered the DNA of victims’ descendants, so that they have different stress hormone profiles to their peers.

Jewish psychologist, Ruth Barnett

Psychologist Ruth Barnett, whose Jewish father fled Germany for Shanghai, narrowly escaping the Holocaust, says she has witnessed inherited trauma in some of her clients.

“Constantly talking about events like the gas chambers to grandchildren is a way that traumatised people try to get rid of it — by sicking it up. But unless it is processed properly, they make even more anxiety for themselves and other generations.”

Never Ever Again! wants to move from what it calls “melancholic memorialisation” to “positive action”, and is calling for mental health provision to treat inherited trauma, as well as campaigning on various issues, including increased surveillance of fascist groups across Europe, supporting the Human Rights Act and challenging anti-immigration legislation.

Glass says that while it is essential to preserve historical facts, the traumatising effect of memory should be addressed now. “Our grandparents went through one horror, but it is important that we learn to process and debrief from their story to bring about wholesale recovery for this generation and the next.

“We should be releasing these old wounds to something beautiful rather than staying paralysed in memory and fear. Until then we cannot properly celebrate their lives or any kind of victory.

“What would our grandparents have felt if they had known we have had to carry their torment through generations? Wouldn’t they have wanted us to find the peace that was robbed from them? Wouldn’t they want us whole and living lives that they lost?

“I realised that if they could speak to us beyond the grave many would have agreed the mourning has to stop and be replaced with something more constructive.”

    Well, if Blacks and White liberals can excuse Black social pathologies as “legacies of slavery” — despite slavery having been abolished well over a century ago — why can’t the Jews demand compensation for “inherited trauma” relating to the “Holocaust”? The Jews have more than enough chutzpah to advance such claims, and there are more than enough nominally White people who are so spineless as to abjectly yield to their outrageous demands.

    Think of it: the Jews have long claimed to have a special relationship with God, and there are countless Christians who share their ridiculous belief. The most hysterical, the most obnoxious, and the most disgusting of the latter would have to be the Christian Zionists, but they are by no means the only offenders in this regard. One can point to Pope Pius XII’s remark that “spiritually, we are Semites” and Pope John Paul II’s characterization of Jews as “elder brothers in the faith.” (One might think that the contract — sorry, covenant — between God and the Jews would have been rescinded by the latter’s act of deicide, but it seems that contemporary Christian theology teaches otherwise.)

    More generally, the Jews have demanded that White people, in one form or another, destroy, surrender, or neglect everything Whites need to survive as a people: our identity, our culture, our genetic integrity, our sovereignty, our territory. And the Jews have been largely successful in doing so.

    Nothing seems to be safe from the depredations of what Seneca called “this most criminal nation.” The Judaized state leaves its mark on everything. Indeed, it’s as if the Jews have implanted Jewish commissars within ourselves. I think it’s time to execute these commissars and take back what belongs to us.

    Let’s sue the churches and synagogues for the trauma experienced by hearing bible stories—mass exterminations, incest, deicide, crucifixions, lakes of fire, eternal torment.

    Then let’s go to films produced by the Hollywood reprobates. How much trauma have they caused?

    The Jews have an iron hand, but they have learned to put a velvet glove on it. Actually a good tactic, and there are too many Europeans who have a surface mentality, and see only the velvet glove.

    Another episode of the insatiable lust of a unique race that suffers from it s own appetence.

    Their greed is expressed in a pathetic self glorification that the parasites crave and they will get it fromm the churches.

    Pastors vapid und without true testimony will indulge them and swoon into the lugubrious luxury of their histrionic self pity and his own vicarious ignominy.

    What hypocrisy! The truth is the EUropean Jews suffered least in that war. They were urged to leave and when they refused they must be concentrated and watched . They were all spies and communists.

    Their families were mostly on the outside waiting for it all to be over so they could return and begin a reign of unprecedented exhibitionism , fraud and extortion.

    Now the bastards are making profit on the memory and debauching the problem of mental health for those , who really suffer. These rich parasites replete with worldly luxury will deprive the last of poorest of a dying race for the very least attention and compassion.

    I know that none of these things , which they eternally and glibly allege never happened. But knowing them one is compelled to believe that it should have.
