The Holocaust swept away the centuries-old Jewish community of Poznañ in western Poland. Zbigniew Pakula traces the history of that community, its institutions, and its response to crucial but little-known events like the expulsion of Polish Jews from Germany in 1938. The Jews of Poznañ however, is not only about destruction, but also about survival and the way that the memory of a lost world can endure as a cornerstone of individual identity. Pakula locates the remaining Jews of Poznañ, now living scattered around the world. He accompanies them as they reminisce, meet old friends, or return to walk again the streets of what will always be their city.
