"The Psychology Behind Being a Hidden Child"

Excerpt from "The Psychology Behind Being a Hidden Child," published in The Hidden Children.

"Some coping mechanisms that children exploited during the years of persecution continue to be helpful: the ability to put on "a good act," a determination to succeed at all costs, taking care of others, and learning to be cared for.

In later life, this ability has helped them to outsmart people who placed obstacles in their way...
Hidden child survivors who hid in several dozen places are still looking for another hiding place and do not enjoy another sense of belonging...
