Questionnaires were answered by more than 1,000 university students and tenth grade high school pupils in both Germany and Israel concerning their knowledge and understanding of the Holocaust and their social and political attitudes. The extent to which students had "worked through" the Holocaust accounted for approximately 25 percent of the variance in the social and political attitudes in both samples. For most of the students there appeared to be a "vicious circle" linking social and political attitudes with attitudes toward the Holocaust, rather than a whole working through process.
