‘Holocaust journeys’ can cause mental health problems



A new study led by Tel Aviv University researchers finds that the Holocaust education trips Israeli high school students take to Poland every year can trigger mental health problems.

About a third of the psychiatric professionals surveyed in this pilot study said they had treated teenagers for psychological problems arising from the Holocaust education trips. While most of the teenagers were treated for less severe symptoms such as anxiety, adjustment, and mood disorders, reports also cited hospitalization, post-traumatic-stress disorder, and psychosis.

In the majority of cases, the affected teenagers exhibited risk factors—like psychiatric or family crises or social difficulties—prior to the Holocaust education trips. Others had stressful experiences during the trips, such as being bullied, that were unrelated to Holocaust education.

“The trips to Poland appear to pose a risk primarily to adolescents with histories of psychological difficulties,” says Dr. Yuval Bloch of Tel Aviv University’s Sackler Faculty of Medicine and head of the Child and Adolescent Outpatient Clinic at Shalvata Mental Health Center. Dr. Bloch was prompted to conduct the study with his wife Dr. Aviva Mimouni-Bloch, also a lecturer in the Sackler Faculty of Medicine and head of the Neuropediatric Unit at Loewenstein Hospital Rehabilitation Hospital, after she and their son went on one of the trips.

A rite of passage

Every year, about 20 percent of Israeli high school students take Holocaust memorial journeys designed to teach them about the Nazi atrocities committed against European Jewry on Polish soil. Over eight days, the students tour concentration camp sites with Holocaust survivors, share Holocaust stories of family members, and learn about the horrors Jews experienced during World War II. Since the trips were made an optional part of the Education Ministry’s curriculum in 1988, more than 30,000 students have participated.

The Holocaust education trips have occasionally generated controversy in Israel, with some people questioning if they are psychologically damaging the country’s youth. An unpublished study presented to the Knesset of 1,996 teenagers who participated in the trips found that 1 percent felt they lacked the “mental strength” to handle their experiences.

    That the offspring of usurping parasites have mental health problems is hardly surprising, and the Nazis have nothing to do with it..

    As it is with the jews everything is a deseption. They are not interesed at all wether the jung jews will be psykologigal disturbed or not. The perpose of it all is to make the jung jews to real jews In other words to make them hateful to the gentiles. What they don`t know is that when they come to Auschwitz to see the gaschamber they acctuly see fasilities made by the komunnist after the war. fasilitis that would look like a gaschamber but in fact wasn´t.
    A comparing thing to this is that the europian schoolchildren also travel to Auschwits with the help of their teachers and and schoolmasters. First they are schowing to them a film at school like Schindlers List and then they go by train to Auschwits to see the real thing. There are now reserches here if they became psykologikal disturb or not after such a travel.

    Right, as if Jews were sane to begin with.

    See how wittingly that unwarrented assumtion is the bases for the article ?

    Because Judaism is a form of mental illness, it would be truer to say, ‘Holocaust journeys’, agravate existant mental lillness.”

    These Israeli adolescents are being subjected to Mossad brainwashing. Watch the film, Defamation, which shows exactly how the teenagers are being imbibed with a mentality that embitters them against Gentiles.

    It’s sick.

    Fed on a diet of hatred so they grow up to be murdering psychotic ethno-supremacists just like their forebears.

    They have also concluded after much research, that water is indeed wet.

    Agree with most of the comments above. I must say that if those who call themselves jews were to study their own real history THAT in itself, SHOULD cause insanity … murderous b’tards is what they are all about; Banking and the ownership of our monetary supply is what gives these cretins the power they have for their continued crimes against humanity. It has NADA to do with a so-called religion. Might ($$$$ for the jews) makes Right. Just look at Strauss and the Neo-CONS (intentional emphasis on CON; it is what they are, and none are religious) …
    I have seen this vid by the Cole character before and will not again indulge the time for this likely troll sycophant, who like zcf, now excuses the jews … I will not. If jews were to take a trip to Occupied Palestine West Bank and see what they have done just to their own neighbors, living in squalor on their own land, it would/should cause insanity, regardless of their inherited inbred tendencies for the same. This vid and article is pointless and once again excuses jews. Read about jews roles in Communism, Capitalism, and all things evil. Jews and their USURY; continuing crimes against all of us goy. It has to stop. No more excuses for these real TYRANTS. (2 words which have been essentially neutered are USURY and TYRANNY; the later is however, still in existence to describe the likes of Hitler, Hussein and …. fill in the blank) Ask yourselves why?

    Almost twenty years ago the elderly from the Polish community here in Melbourne Australia were being bussed at no cost to themselves from their community centre to see Schindler’s List.

    I guess had there been an Auschwitz replica here, there would be a obligatory annual pilgrimage for them too, to rub it in, not that Poles had anything to do with it, but the Jewish reasoning is that if you’re European you’re as guilty as the Germans are alleged to be.

    Guy Nicholls, “Fed on a diet of hatred so they grow up to be murdering psychotic ethno-supremacists just like their forebears”.

    So true, as you indicate, it’s intentional, it tips a certain percentage of them into emptying a clip from their M16 into a unoffending Palestinian schoolgirl going to/coming from school as happened several years ago because she could have had a bomb in her backpack !

    Now for a long time, related to the psychopathy deliberately engendered in these Jewish kids was their putting a bullet from their M16 through the head of a Palestinian kid; they literally get off on seeing through the rifle scope the instant pink haze of brain matter at the moment of impact.

    One more example will suffice of this stoked foulness simmering behind their eyes was their penchant, some decades ago, for fouling up the Palestinians’ drinking water wells with the entrails of their Kosher butchered animals.

    Gawd, i don’t hate Jews, but i sure would hate to be one, as it’s quite a burden (but only if i were to know i’ve been massively lied to) given what we here know of what they do, either just for pranks or out of a programmed malevolent hatred – both impulsed by the systematic inculcation of LIES about the camps in war time Europe.

    Thanks for the video. Notice how Jewish youth are indoctrinated from an early age. The high school students were outright neurotic, paranoid, and delusional. This proves their being descendants of Cain as mentioned in Genesis Chapter 4. “A murderer from the beginning”.

    The Scream; one side-effect often experienced by teenagers, and those around them, upon realizing it was not only Jews, or even mostly Jews, dead in camps in Poland.

    I wonder if the Polish people might ALSO show video and photos of their own holocaust?
    Or, as has been true, is it only the Jewish hollow-cause that matters, still?
    (why do I even ask?)

    Are parents finally educating their kids regarding the actual (estimated, but best we can do, in hindsight) numbers of Jews who died in nothern regions of Europe? Are the kids finally being told most died from tick bites and dyssentary? I hope so. I have told my kids this truth.

    Related to this is the expression of anorexia in the spectacular case of the fair haired twins Clare and Rachel Wallmeyer, who at the age of 39 died in a house fire in Geelong Australia a year ago.

    These gaunt and shrivelled human beings were suffering like this for 25yrs, because to live normally would be to escape the terrible guilt imposed on their race by – a fable, being the unspeakable and insufferable agonies the Germans were supposed to have inflicted on Jews.

    Suffering, and finally ending their genetic inheritance, was, it seemed to them, fitting atonement for being bearers of those same genes – or so the fable goes, from which sprang the irresistible impulse to inflct unbearable sufferings on Jews.

    How common is anorexia in non European peoples ? I don’t believe it exists in others.

    Jewish encyclopedia of 1939 says, 11 1/2 million jews in the world. 5 1/2 in Eurorope and Russia. 1946 Jewish Encyclopidia states there are 14 million jews in ‘the world’. Warburg,Schiff,Rothchild funded these wars and became rich from raw blood. All races in the war declined in birth. Somehow, “jews” lost six million, and gained. Let us give these mongroles their 6. Let us also remind them that it was “Their” bankers that got rich off their blood. Should we cry for them? Should we better recognize what they are. How do they get 6 out of 5 1/2. Strange math, even in America.

    My money is on these youngsters with mental health problems becoming the next generation of Holocaust Survivors.

    The article is from the jews. Where are our expertise’s and where are the silenced voices of the revisionists who can easily dismantle the hoax by evidence and not by emotion and false witnesses from the jews.

    If that isn’t enough this american became very depressed just watching the psuedo-poetry-documentary “night and fog” in a film class at school. i never could write a critique of it.

    everyone who is capable to watch through this either doesnt know what time it is or has a capabilty of self-induced suffering beyond my possibilites.
    i for one had to tune off after 5 mins.

    Mark Glenn and readers at The Ugly Truth.

    I came across this source for updates on Syria from a broad spectrum of international sources.

    It updates by the minute, linking to news stories from around the world concerning Syria.

    I thought some here would find it helpful and interesting.

    gloriosaedominae1, Norman Finkelstein in his The Holocaust Industry, stated that in 1945 when the camp gates were opened, 100,000 inmates came out, including Jews. But by 2000, there were 1,000,000 Holocaust Survivors, all on the take.

    To which he reported his own mother as saying,”Who then did Hitler kill ?” – paraphrasing.

    Were they to try and attach the current crop of damaged adolescents to the ever giving German teat, they would at last be triggering a revolt in Germany, for which a nuclear response from the supplied gratis German Dolphin Class submarines would be approved of by one Martin van Creveld who in 03 was a Professor of Military History in Israel, who then said that all of Europe’s capitols were now in range of Israeli missiles. Nice Jewish man otherwise, i’m sure.

    Imagine the trauma these depression-prone jewish teenegers would have suffered had they visited the Hell of Gaza during the Israeli onslaught of 2008/2009.

    Or not … ?

    They gotta keep Jews brainwashed. Jews are perhaps the biggest victims of Zionist lies, myths, distortions and propaganda, and from them, it spreads to the Gentiles. “If a Jew said so, it must be true; they KNOW.”

    The Jews are great fable makers… From the Burning Bush on .it’s been all rubbish… “there is no business like Shoah Business…..Always remember ! Ann Frank died in a SS HOSPITOL :Placed there by GERMAN SS ! Most of her family survived ! Including her Aunt who worked in a German radio factory ! it would of taken 64 years for the Germans and their allies to kill 6 million people ! the Holocrap only was supposed to begin in early 42 ! Aushwich was over run by the Soviets in the fall of 45 ! Remember…. NO GAS CHAMERS WERE VER IN GERMAN INTSELF ! Even the Jews now admit that !

    It is unsurprising that after viewing false films and taught false facts in schools & lectures and then show facilities while being told more falsehoods, would question what they have been shown and told might easily begin to have mental difficulties reconciling these massive LIES!
