The paper presents a shift in the research focus concerning the Holocaust survivors - from investigating symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder to discovering the sources of strength enabling their survival. A brief chronological overview of studies on the Holocaust survivors is presented. Moreover, a number of psychological problems most often experienced by the survivors are identified, including their non-acceptance of separation, fear of closeness, difficulty in defining personal and social identity, susceptibility to hurt feelings, and a sense of guilt.
