The shadows of the past are still long. Young Jews on their life in Germany

Reading and Discussion with David Ranan

Young Jews in Germany: How do grandchildren of Holocaust survivors live and feel in this country seventy years after the end of World War II? How do 20 and 40-year-olds experience being Jewish in everyday life in Germany and how they react to events such as the circumcision debate? In this book, young Jews tell their family stories, consider their identity and the family and work prospects that they see for their future in Germany.

David Ranan is from a German-Jewish family. He grew up in Israel and now lives in London and works as a freelance writer.

Moderated by Yasemin Shooman (Jewish Museum Berlin)
