New "study" claims children of Holocaust survivors inherit trauma

Postby Lamprecht » 2 months 3 weeks ago (Mon Jul 01, 2019 6:45 pm)

I remember something just like this coming out a few years ago, but here we have it again with a new study supposedly proving that Jews are still suffering from the gas chambers, even if they were born yesterday!

Children of Holocaust Survivors Could Inherit Brain Trauma, New Study Suggests

Even 70 years after the Holocaust, a new study finds evidence of trauma rewiring the survivors’ brains—and possibly their descendants’ as well.

New research shows that the trauma of surviving the Holocaust permanently altered the brain structure of Holocaust survivors, and might impact the brain structure of their descendants as well.

The study, presented by neurologist Ivan Rektor, head of the Research Centre for Neuroscience at Masaryk University in the Czech Republic, used MRI scanning to examine the brain functions of 28 Holocaust survivors and compared them with 28 people who were not persecuted during the Holocaust.

Even 70 years after the Holocaust, evidence of the way trauma rewired the survivors’ brains was clear: There was a significant decrease in gray matter in the parts of the brain responsible for memory, stress, emotion, and behavior.

While much of the brain remains a mystery, scientists have found that the human brain is composed of gray matter and white matter; and that gray matter helps the brain process information and can be involved in everything from muscle control to memory, emotions, and decision-making.

In previous research, scientists found a link between gray matter reduction and PTSD. Different traumas caused different gray matter reduction patterns. Some scientists believe gray matter reduction can be used as a predictor for future disabilities and cognitive impairments.

The study also showed that Holocaust survivors who were below the age of 12 in 1945 had more reduction in gray matter than did older survivors, perhaps because younger victims felt the affects of the Holocaust as their brains were still developing.

Rektor’s researchers are now investigating how this trauma could affect the descendants of survivors. Early results from children of Holocaust survivors suggest there is less connectivity between the brain structures associated with memory and emotion.

"Our hope is that these findings and our ongoing research will allow us to understand more about the effect of these experiences in order to focus therapy to support survivors' and their descendants' resilience and growth,” Rektor said in a press release.

Despite this, survivors told researchers they were satisfied with the lives they have built for themselves in the decades following the war.

Now, I looked for the full study, and I found this:
Holocaust history is not reflected in telomere homeostasis in survivors and their offspring
https://doi.org/10.1016/j.jpsychires.2019.06.018

From the abstract:
Telomeres, nucleoprotein structures at the ends of eukaryotic chromosomes, are crucial for the maintenance of genome integrity. While the lengths of telomeres at birth are determined genetically, many factors including environmental and living conditions affect the telomere lengths during a lifespan. In this context, extreme and long-term stress has been shown to negatively impact telomeres and their protective function, with even offspring being influenced by the stress experienced by parents. Using quantitative PCR, the relative lengths of telomeres of survivors of the Holocaust during World War II and two generations of their offspring were analyzed. These data were related to those of control groups, persons of comparable age without a strong life stress experience. In contrast to previous studies of other stress-exposed groups, the relative lengths of telomeres were comparable in groups of persons exposed to Holocaust-related stress and their progenies, and in control groups. Interestingly, shorter telomeres of Holocaust survivors of the age under 12 in the year 1945 compared to Holocaust survivors of the age above 12 were detected. Our results are discussed with respect to certain exceptionality of persons having been able to cope with an extreme stress more than 70 years ago and living to a very old age.


Does the description there not suggest that the progeny do not inherit this stress, at least if you measure by telomere length? Seems like a garbage, pointless study.

We rather think this is the correct title:

New Study Reveals that Children of Fake "holocaust survivors" are Looking for Ways to Keep the Cash Flowing.
B.
Revisionists are just the messengers, the impossibility of the "Holocaust" narrative is the message.

Nature or nurture? That's what this is all about. The jew has always wanted to be a victim and to exploit that situation to the fullest degree. This means that instead of there being some actual inherited gene pool that makes them mentally ill from the travails of their 'holocaust surviving' parents, the parents themselves have put this nonsense on their own children by years and years of applied victim hood manipulation.

It's all about the money.

If they can convince the authorities that this is a thing then they can ask for compensation.

When you have a sick system instaled in every facet of your society that bangs on and on and on about an impossible to have happened story, of course kids will grow up messed up... i could have told them that without any study being necessary

Keeping all the plates spinning must be stressful; are there any desendants of the one witnesed "in a cage with a bear being pecked by an eagle", they must be in a state.

Another, different study says "Holocaust" survivors suffer brain damage, and pass it on to their descendants!

Brain changes noted in holocaust survivors and their children

(HealthDay)—Holocaust survivors may have suffered permanent harmful changes to their brain structure, and the brains of their children and grandchildren may also be affected, a small study reveals.

"After more than 70 years, the impact of surviving the Holocaust on brain function is significant," said researcher Ivan Rektor, a neurologist from Brno, Czech Republic.

MRI scans of 28 Holocaust survivors showed they had a significantly decreased volume of gray matter in the brain compared to 28 people in the same age group without a personal or family history of the Holocaust. Their average age was about 80.

The affected parts of the brain are responsible for stress response, memory, motivation, emotion, learning and behavior, the study authors said.

Reductions in gray matter were significantly higher among Holocaust survivors who were younger than 12 in 1945, compared to those who were older. This may be because a child's developing brain is more vulnerable to stress, the researchers suggested.

Gray matter reductions in the Holocaust survivors were found in areas of the brain associated with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in combat veterans and people who suffered high levels of stress early in life.

But gray matter reductions found elsewhere in the brains of Holocaust survivors were far greater than previously found in people with PTSD, the findings showed.

The study can't prove that the horrors of the Nazi regime actually caused the changes in brain structure seen among survivors and their descendants.

However, the researchers are now assessing Holocaust survivors' children and grandchildren. And early findings in the children show reduced connectivity between brain structures involved in processing emotion and memory.

"We revealed substantial differences in the brain structures … between Holocaust survivors and controls. Early results show this is also the case in children of survivors, too," Rektor said in a European Academy of Neurology news release.

"Our hope is that these findings and our ongoing research will allow us to understand more about the effect of these experiences in order to focus therapy to support survivors' and their descendants' resilience and growth," Rektor said. "We may also reveal strategies that Holocaust survivors used to cope with trauma during their later lives and to pass on their experience to further generations."

The study results were recently presented at a European Academy of Neurology meeting in Oslo, Norway. Data and conclusions presented at meetings are usually considered preliminary until published in a peer-reviewed medical journal.


According to various articles, the study involved 28 people and a control group. 28 is a very small sample size, especially to base such conclusions on. And it doesn't tell us whether the control group were Jews. If they are gentiles, it may simply show a biological difference between Jews and Gentiles.

Yet we know Jews have been persecuted over 1,000 times throughout history. See: viewtopic.php?t=12596

So wouldn't this be the norm in their case? Hmmmm
