This piece explores the issue of casework services for adolescent newcomers who have migrated from Europe to the United States. The author describes the unique characteristics of the group, which includes two different categories: those who were partisans (and hid themselves, pretending to be gentiles), and others who survived concentration camps. The piece also highlights the process to aid newcomers in their need for self-reorganization and adaptation to a new environment. The piece concludes by affirming the difficulty and unique nature of dealing with this population and the need for balance in understanding, expressing feeling and effectively handling services for this population.
