Editorial Reviews


"Chronicling the on-going history of Jews and Jewish culture in Germany after the Shoah, from the tragic to the comic, this is an incredible tale of the tenacity of Jewish culture to exist even in those parts of the world where there was the most intense attempt to destroy it. The articles are uniformly illuminating and readable; indeed, the entire book presents a new and most compelling look at the least known aspect of Jewish culture in the twenty-first century: the vibrant, conflicted, and extraordinary world of the Jews in today's Germany. Morris, Zipes and their authors have made a stellar contribution to our understanding of life after the Shoah. -- Sander L. Gilman, Director, The Humanities Laboratory, The University of Illinois–Chicago
This is an intelligent and imaginative revisiting of the German-Jewish ‘symbiosis,’ not as fact but as problematic. Using history, literature, memoirs, architecture, and theories on memory and representation, the essays acknowledge the complex, fluid identities of the 'Germans' and the 'Jews' as well as the ever-changing relations between them. "--Marion Kaplan, Professor of Modern Jewish History, New York University

"Leslie Morris and Jack Zipes have brought together social historians and literary critics who productively reflect on the situation of Jews in the German states and Austria since 1945, and on the changing positions and psychological makeup of a fast growing minority of mostly Eastern European immigrants.' --Liliane Weissberg, Joseph B. Glossberg Term Professor in the Humanities and Professor of German and Comparative Literature, University of Pennsylvania
