Default Re: Couch 220: Second To None!

QM, I believe so. I have really vivid nightmares every couple years that I'm a Jew in the Holocaust and usually that people that I care about and love are also Jewish. The dreams don't reflect any specifics that I know of people's stories (I mean memoirs and stuff). I am not Jewish. I have had a morbid/horrified fascination with Holocaust history since I was a little girl, and I think the dreams are just a weird sort of empathy and a way of trying to process how people can purposely and cold-heartedly harm others as if it's nothing.

That helps to know because it was so real that it was almost like I was living it really. And the awful feelings lingered for a good while.

I do help run a survivor group and do online peer support so it's probably stuff from there even though we deliberately never get graphic.
