The way to avoid trauma

A 92-year-old survivor of the Warsaw Ghetto uprising against the Nazis in 1943, one of the last such, died in Israel over the weekend. According to the Jerusalem Post, when Stephan Grayek was asked, in an interview twenty years, ago, why he had escaped the lasting trauma so common among survivors of the Nazi genocide attempt, he replied, "Perhaps because, like other people in the resistance, I fought back."
