    Most BT’s descend from families who immigrated before the war, and most FFB’s descend from those who immigrated after the war. The effects of the war on those families last until today. The abuse in yeshivas and many FFB homes is a result of the trauma inflicted by the nazis, yemach shemom. (To be fair, it is improving today. My husband said he was greeted every day to cheder with a potch, and today they give out candies – but I know for a fact that serious abuse still goes on.) It is generally better for a BT to marry a BT to avoid marrying a person who inherited “issues” from the war generation.

    And if Hatzolah will be getting paid, I hope its EMTs will as well.

    Does this mean Hatzolah will not take you if you have no insurance? Or will they bill the patient?

    Dear YWN,

    It seems you are assuming that your “readers” are “regular” people who should not be so sensitive, and that “other” people (nonreaders?) live these tragedies.

    Many YWN readers – including myself – HAVE survived terrorist attacks and now suffer from PTSD. I did not click the link – your front page picture was enough to trigger my PTSD.

    Do you know what it’s like to be attacked by terrorists in your dreams, night after night? Those of us who have lived through it do not go through it only once – we go through it every night in our dreams, we go through it via flashback every time we find ourselves in a place that looks, sounds, or even smells like the place where the trauma occurred.

    Your front page picture can bring flashbacks and nightmares to the survivors of such attacks – why would you want to make us suffer again?

    The best way to handle news stories like these is to put ALL graphic images inside the link with NONE on the front page, with a large warning that clicking the link.

    Thank you for listening.

    A survivor
