"Despite The Holocaust: Rebuilding Jewish Life In Germany After 1945"

"Despite The Holocaust: Rebuilding Jewish Life In Germany After 1945"

Please join us for Andrea Sinn's talk "Despite The Holocaust: Rebuilding Jewish Life In Germany After 1945."

She will discuss the experiences of Jewish communities in postwar Germany and the process of redefining Jewish existence in "the land of the perpetrators." The competing and conflicting German, Jewish, and international conceptions of Jewish life in Germany that were voiced during the early postwar years play an important role in understanding the development of individual Jewish communities in the Federal Republic and the position that German-Jewish organizations occupy within Germany and the Jewish community in Europe today.
