The Holocaust's Impact on Survivors' Religious Views

Cover pic.jpg

This site focuses on the Holocaust's impact on Jewish survivors' religious views after the war. Through the analysis of testimonies, there are three patterns of pathways taken post war:

  1. Survivors immediately identified themselves as Jewish
  2. At first, some denied Judaism and with time learned to accept their Jewish identity
  3. Cut the Jewish religion from their lives
