As the population of Holocaust survivors ages, their needs are becoming more complex and more acute; more attention is also being drawn to the need to understand the impact of the Holocaust on the children of survivors and provide support to this group.

This volume presents the proceedings of the Preconference Institute on Working with Holocaust Survivors and the Second Generation, held July 3-4, 1994, in Jerusalem. The interest generated by the conference and the high level of participation attested to the importance and timeliness of the issues raised.

The JDC-Brookdale Institute has in the past played an active role in evaluating the extent of the Holocaust population in Israel and their needs in order to promote national and international efforts to assist them.  JDC-Israel has cooperated with AMCHA on a number of programs for Holocaust survivors. JDC-Israel and the JDC-Brookdale Institute were pleased to collaborate with AMCHA in publishing these proceedings in order to make them available to the broader audience of communal workers concerned with the needs of Holocaust survivors and their families.
