»Background: Children Born of War (CBOW) grew up in an ambivalent societal atmosphere between acceptance and rejection. The German CBOW were mostly socialised in absence of their biological fathers. Despite the historical work on German CBOW, there is a lack of psychosocial studies focusing on subjective identity in this particular group.
