ABSTRACT

Much has been written about the psychological effects of the Holocaust on those who directly experienced and survived it, as well its effects on subsequent generations. Through the case of Ann, a third-generation survivor, Michal Talby-Abarbanel illustrates the evolution of an enacted process in which her patient’s unconscious relationship with her mother’s disavowed Holocaust trauma was recreated in the treatment. My discussion is based on her written report well as my supervisory experience of the treatment.1
