  • Auschwitz Survivors. Clinical-Psychiatric Studies


Although many years passed, investigations into these problems continue. Altogether, more than 3000 former prisoners have been examined in the Department of Psychiatry in the Academy of Medicine in Cracow (now Collegium Medicum, Jagiellonian University). A large number of these people received ambulatory care. The staff succeeded in forming close emotional ties with these people, whose experiences do not bear comparison to any other heavy trauma.

Most of the Cracow research papers have been published in 'Przegląd Lekarski - Oświecim' (Medical Review - Auschwitz), an academic publication of the Towarzystwo Lekarskie Krakowskie (Cracow Medical Society).

Altogether, 31 volumes of 'Przegląd Lekarski - Oświęcim' were published, in the years 1961-1991.

This selection of research papers by Cracow psychiatrists, presented in a dynamic and trans-generational way and published in the present book, should make the English-speaking reader better acquainted with the main current in the war pathology and the pathology of Nazi concentration camps.

Titles of selected articles:
- Psychological Reactions to Psychosomatic Stress in 100 Former Prisoners of the Auschwitz-Birkenau Concentration Camp (Aleksander Teutsch),
- Post-camp Personality Alterations in Former Prisoners of the Auschwitz-Birkenau Concentration Camp (Roman Leśniak),
- The Rhythm of Death in the Concentration Camp (Zdzisław Jan Ryn),
- The So-called 'KZ-Syndrome' - An Attempt at a Synthesis (Antoni Kępiński),
-Escapes from Concentration Camps: A Psychiatric-psychological Analysis (Roman Leśniak, Elżbieta Leśniak),
- Concentration Camp Survivors and War Disability Benefits (Adam Szymusik).
