Dieter Graumann is the first President of the Central Council of Jews in Germany who did not directly experience Nazi terror. He would not like the Jewish identity to be derived solely from formulae like "Shoah plus antisemitism." In his new book "Nachgeboren - vorbelastet?" he provides insights into his life and argues passionately for a pluralistic and vibrant Judaism in Germany: "What I would like to see here is a Judaism that will certainly never forget ... our history of suffering, but that will from now on cultivate with much greater intensity the positive dimensions of Judaism and become involved in all societal debates with creativity and initiative."
