Based on a unique research study, this volume examines the later life development of Holocaust survivors from Israel and the U.S. Through systematic interviews, the authors -- noted researchers and clinicians -- collected data about the lives of these survivors and how they compared to peers who did not share this experience. The orientation of the book synthesizes several conceptual approaches â€" gerontological and life span development, stress research, and traumatology, and also reflects the varied disciplines of the authors, spanning psychology, social work, and sociology
