Show Summary Details


This chapter discusses the continuity of Jewish presence in Germany. It examines the three modes of continuity that can be discerned after the respective turning points of 1933, 1943, and 1945. After these three periods, Jewish life in Germany has been carried on in a different, no less impressive manner by a new group called the Jews of Germany. The legacy of German Jewry discloses the substance of their future in all its essential dimensions, and offers them a source of mutual assurance and support.
