'Judith Hassan has written a book which will strike readers on several levels. Dedicated to the memory of her parents - her mother was a refugee from Nazi Germany - it tells of the growing understanding derived from working with Holocaust-survivors. The Holocaust brings many lessons for all of us. Hassan's particular lesson is that it is possible to help those who carry deep within them old and desperate wounds. The lesson extends to suggesting that we could do the same for others whose wounds are fresher, perhaps more accessible. And she shows us how help might reasonably be given.' - Jewish Chronicle 'This book describes what the author has learned, from working at the Shalvata Centre in London and setting up the Holocaust Survivors' Centre (HSC) next door, about the sort of services that can help those who survived the trauma of life in a Nazi concentration camp, or flight in the kindertransport, to realize their capacity for joy and contentment in the latter part of their lives.' - Jewish Quarterly 'Some suffering, like certain grief leaves scars beyond those who experience it themselves. Their children carry it in their wounded souls like secrets that are too burdensome, or nightmares that are too disturbing to be faced. It is not a matter of physical or psychological wounds, for these are not even tangible. They often escape detection from traditional medicine or therapy, emanating from experiences transmitted from one generation to the next, each equally traumatised. But for those who can recognise these wounds, as Judith Hassan does in this book rich in understanding and compassion, the pain remains vivid.' Elie Wiesel, Andrew W. Mellon Professor in the Humanities, Boston University How do we respond to extreme suffering? Judith Hassan faced this challenge by listening to the survivors and learning from them as the experts on their own experiences. She discovered that conventional therapeutic responses did not seem to go far enough and she has spent twenty-five years developing innovative services for survivors of the Nazi Holocaust, as well as more recent refugees from Bosnia. Judith Hassan has developed a model that addresses the trauma of individuals who faced starvation, torture and who witnessed the murder of close family members. Her book discusses the kinds of demands placed on those who work with these survivors and opens up issues for others in the field of war trauma to answer in their own particular and appropriate way. Translating the language of liberation into practice, A House Next Door to Trauma points to a different way of becoming a neighbour to all those who suffer extreme war experiences. It is clear and hopeful in the positive potential it lends to therapeutic work in this area.

Following the success of FORGOTTEN VOICES OF THE GREAT WAR the series now chronicles one of human histories darkest hours. The author comes to the project following her significant work in recording the experiences of Holocaust survivors for the Imperial War Museum sound archive - one of the most important archive of its kind in the world. The intertwined moving and revealing interviews reveal the sheer complexity and horror of the Holocaust. The great majority of survivors suffered considerable physical and psychological wounds, yet the overall story is far from being just gloom and doom. There are many poignant vignettes describing acts of charity, reciprocity and kindness in the face of the most extreme form of barbarism. As well as revealing the story of the Holocaust as directly experienced by victims, these testimonies also illustrate how, even enduring the most harsh and degrading conditions and treatment as well as suffering massive family losses, hope, the will to survive and the human spirit shines through.

Entre 1940 et 1944, durant le programme d'extermination des Juifs d'Europe, de nombreux enfants juifs ont été contraints de vivre cachés pour assurer leur survie. Séparés de leurs parents, ils ont alors été exposés à des attaques de filiation, d'affiliation, à des pertes, des privations et des frayeurs multiples. La Libération n'en a pas été une pour eux : outre les traumas cumula-tifs vécus pendant la période de clandestinité, ils ont dû supporter le silence et l'absence de reconnaissance officielle de leur situation. Si l'impact des événements historiques participe à la construction psychique des individus, la problématique de ces enfants d'hier qui ont aujourd'hui plus de 65 ans questionne également les théories et les pratiques psychologiques. Comment ont-ils fait face à cette accumulation de traumatismes ? Comment ceux-ci sont-ils repérables chez les adultes qu'ils sont devenus ? Ont-ils, malgré tout, pu se reconstruire ? Quelles ont été leurs trajectoires de vie ? A travers les récits qu'elle a recueillis et analysés, Marion Feldman recherche les traces de l'enfance. Elle propose des outils de compréhension des traumatismes et de la manière dont ils peuvent être surmontés. Elle témoigne ainsi d'une clinique engagée dans le social, l'histoire et le politique.
