The surviving Jews were of course released from the concentration camps. Most tried to return to a normal life, but in many cases that didn't work out well at least in the short term.

Answer

There were very few Holocaust survivors in the sense of prisoners still alive in camps. Most tried to go back to leading a normal life, but in Poland the "Christian" (sic) population continued to slaughter Jews in 1945-46. This was a key factor in encouraging many Jews to leave Europe, either for Palestine, where British rule was rapidly collapsing, or for the U.S.

The Holocaust has left very deep scars.
