[I used the British spelling of traumatized in the title of my post, but don’t worry, I’m not British.]
According to a news article, from Scotland, which you can read in full here, the grandchildren of Holocaust SURVIVORS are being traumatized by the suffering endured by their grandparents 70 years ago. The prisoners in the Nazi concentration camps, who survived because they weren’t gassed, are now traumatizing their young grandchildren by constantly harping about the horrors of the non-existant gas chambers.
This quote is from the news article:
A CAMPAIGN started in Scotland is calling for help to be given to grandchildren of Holocaust survivors who have inherited the trauma from their relatives.
Some studies conclude there is no effect of trauma two generations on while some claim the breast milk of survivors was affected by stress hormones.
Others in the field of epigenetics claim the atrocities altered the DNA of victims descendants, meaning they have different stress hormone profiles to their peers.
Psychologist Ruth Barnett, whose Jewish father narrowly escaped the Holocaust by fleeing from Germany to Shanghai, says she has witnessed inherited trauma in some of her clients.
She said: “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.”
Imagine if my grandparents had constantly talked to me about the gas that was used against the German soldiers in World War I. Allegedly, Hitler got the idea of gassing the Jews from his war time experience in World War I, when he was blinded by a gas attack.
I look upon this new development as a ploy to get more money out of the German people to pay the grandchildren of the survivors who were not gassed. If Hitler had only known that this was going to happen, he would have given orders to gas all the Jews, not just the famous Six Million.
You can read another news article here about the grandchildren who have been traumatized.
My suggestion is for the Scottish government to sponsor trips to Auschwitz in which the grandchildren of survivors can visit the gas chamber in the main Auschwitz camp and be instructed in the science of gas chambers, which proves that this room could NOT have been a gas chamber.
