Jews, Germany, memory: a contemporary portrait
Jews, Germany, Memory: A Contemporary Portrait is an eye-opening book that looks at how, after the Holocaust and against all odds, Jews re-settled in the land of the perpetrator, rebuilt their communities and began forging relations once again with their neighbors. Told in words and pictures by one of the leading documentary photographers working in Europe today, this poignant study shows us not only how Jews live in today's Germany, but takes us to meet those Jews who fled their homes in the 1930s and swore never to return. But because there is no other place in the world where a Jew is defined so much as where he is (as opposed to what he is), Jews, Germany, Memory delves deep into German society itself, to see how non-Jewish Germans relate to the past, as well as to those few Jews who live among them today. In this book, we accompany Serotta as he visits German high schools where children explore (and some refuse to deal with) the Holocaust; on a bus to Auschwitz with the German press corps; as well as old age homes in Israel, where young Germans have gone to volunteer, and atone, for the sins of their grandparents.
