The book unfolds a panorama of Jewish life in Germany at the beginning of the 21st century. The multitude of voices – both journalistic and belletristic – reveal a profound shift in Jewish life in Germany since the end of the Cold War. It is no longer about traditional German Jewry, nor about the plight of a community consisting mainly of survivors. Now it is about immigrants primarily from the Soviet Union and their children who are shaping a new Jewish community. The colorful, almost confusing diversity is presented by the editors and a row of the volume’s renowned authors in a reading and discussion.
