In Jewish Population Studies 19 (Papers in Jewish Demography, 1985), 357-367. This paper explores the educational and occupational achievements of adult children of Jewish Holocaust survivors, compared to those of two control groups. It intersects two areas of inquiry: a concern with second generation effects of severe victimization, specifically the Holocaust; and a concern with the study of the role of the family in the status attainment process in North America.
