Inherited feelings

I recently attended a congress about war grandchildren in Germany. This term is used for children of war children, roughly the generation born between 1960 and 1975. Their parents were children during the Second World War. The war grandchildren in Germany mostly grew up in a stable, relatively wealthy environment. They did not lack food, a warm bed, health care, or education. But they did lack emotional bonding.
