“Easy as That”

Jewish Childhood and Youth in Germany after 1945 – From the Series Testimonies from the Jewish Museum Berlin (in German)

Those who grew up Jewish in Germany after 1945 could take nothing for granted. The Jewish Museum Berlin asked twenty-eight Jews of different generations about their childhood and youth in Germany. Their personal vignettes and stories reveal a complex and contradictory panorama of Jewish life in today's Germany.
