Her team’s work is the clearest example in humans of the transmission of trauma to a child via what is called “epigenetic inheritance” - the idea that environmental influences such as smoking, diet and stress can affect the genes of your children and possibly even grandchildren.
They found epigenetic tags on the very same part of this gene in both the Holocaust survivors and their offspring, the same correlation was not found in any of the control group and their children.
Other studies have proposed a more tentative connection between one generation’s experience and the next. For example, girls born to Dutch women who were pregnant during a severe famine at the end of the second world war had an above-average risk of developing schizophrenia.

More fodder for the Holocaust Industry. More bilking for multiple generations.

The study is such a joke.
"holocaust" is not a specific type of exposure. "exposure to lead" or "exposure to mercury" are specific types of exposure. You can't have a scientific study based on completely non-scientific criteria. They mention people who were in hiding, people who were interned by the Nazis, and people who witnessed torture were considered "holocaust victims" for the purposes of this study.
So, did they find non-Jewish people around the world of varying ethnicity who have been victims/witnessed torture, been in a death camp, or were in hiding for their lives? Or are Nazi death camps the only type of death camp capable of causing genetic damage? I knew the Nazis were advanced, but that would be pretty surprising.
