Editorial Reviews


"A pioneering and innovative study that will undoubtedly stimulate work in the fields of German and Jewish post-war history in the coming years."---Shirli Gilbert, Patterns of Prejudice

"Atina Grossman has written an exceptionally fascinating book. . . . Atina Grossman has done us all a great service."---Julia Schulze Wessel, Shofar

"This book makes a significant contribution by illuminating the fascinating and complex interactions between surviving Jews and their neighbors in postwar Germany."---Timothy Schroer, H-Net Reviews

"Atina Grossmann's great insight is that the postwar reappearance of a traumatized Jewish population--and the survivors' high rates of marriage, pregnancy and childbearing--cannot be understood apart from the parallel victimhood of the 'German' population."---Paul Grant, Books & Culture

"Jews, Germans, and Allies is an important historical document, especially in light of those revisionists who would impose a universal amnesia about the suffering and losses incurred during the Holocaust. The grim statistics that Ms. Grossmann presents in her carefully researched and well-organized book carry evidence of the terrible truth. But the testimony of the survivors she quotes contains the final, ineradicable facts of history."---Hilma Wolitzer, East Hampton Star

"Winner of the 2008 George L. Mosse Prize, American Historical Association"

"Any historian with even the vaguest idea of the monumental effort that goes into producing a research monograph like this, with thousands of archival and secondary sources used (the notes alone run to some 100 pages), will find it difficult to level serious criticism against it. Thoroughly researched and beautifully written, Jews, Germans, and Allies has rightfully won a number of awards."---Kay Schiller, European History Quarterly

"Winner of the 2006 Fraenkel Prize in Category A, Wiener Library"

"All told, Grossmann's book paints a fascinating portrait of the 'close encounters' in occupied Germany among Jews, Germans, and Allies. Her gendered lens helps better nuance our understanding of this chaotic period. I highly recommend this book for scholars, students, and the general public."---Lynn Rapaport, Holocaust and Genocide Studies

"Grossmann, herself the daughter of German-Jewish refugees, . . . has written the definitive history of [Allied-occupied Germany].", Jewish Post and News


"Jews, Germans, and Allies stakes out new historical and theoretical ground. Beautifully written, studded with verbal and pictorial images, Grossmann's text takes us on a gripping historical journey. A master narrative: she maintains complete control of the riveting history she tells, while weaving in amazing snapshots of individual lives and contemporary reports."―Debórah Dwork, director of the Strassler Family Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies at Clark University
