"Families, like nations, also transmit values, culture and creativity to future generations. This wonderful book is the proof. It opens the space for the readers from different horizons to pose different intelligent questions."

"This important book deal with topics which have been, for a long time, rarely approached in psychoanalytical publications. Writings about collective traumas and their consequences have stayed apart from clinical hypotheses and reports. The value of this book should be highlighted along these lines, given the fact that the authors live in a European region which has been subjected to the effects of these traumas. They bring to us, added to their excellent review of transgenerational trauma literature, their own and new constructions of 'the transgenerational atmosphere and the transgenerational self-experience'."
