The influence of Stalinist repressions of the thirties on family life in three generations

The study of life stories of Stalinist repressions victims' grandchildren confirms M. Bowen's hypothesis on correlation between vertical cutoff and the efficiency of functioning in posterior generations. This correlation is demonstrated for "basic functioning". "Social functioning" in modem world is connected to grandchildren's inheritance of moral and ideal values of grandparents, active search of contacts with family roots ("family resources" after V. Satir) and the second and third generations' active protests against authoritarian regime.
