This article presents the development of an anti-group among a group of parents whose children committed suicide. All the participants but two were children of Holocaust survivors (i.e. second-generation Holocaust survivors); these two were married to second-generation Holocaust survivors, so that in all cases, the son who committed suicide had at least one parent who was a second-generation Holocaust survivor. The article explains the transference, countertransference and projective identification that developed in the group.
