Abstract

Holocaust survivors’ views on the world are unique and, as older adults, survivors and, as older adults, survivors can offer a great deal of information to other trauma survivors, to other older adults, and to the gerontology and trauma communities as well as educators and policy makers. My dissertation focuses on the positive benefits occurring from this tragedy and provides information from three survivors on how the coping strategies they used during and after the war are still relevant today as they deal with the difficulties of old age.
