Some Holocaust losses were too much to grieve. It might be up to the next generation to do so. But this may be especially difficult, as the original traumas may need to be retrieved from unconscious inheritance of traumatic events, a conspiracy of silence, and unmentioned parental traumas. A clinical case is presented where these obstacles are overcome.

Illustrations and means of transmission of trauma across the generations are presented. Such transmission may be interrupted. It is never too late for love to thaw out trauma.
