A congress on contemporary jewish positions

The Jewish community in Germany is more diverse than the public staging of Holocaust survivors, anti-Semitism experts, or suntanned Jewish “musclemen” allows one to imagine. What is then the common denominator of Jewish identity? Are Jews a religious community, an ethnicity, or a victim group?

Desintegration discusses the question of a Jewish identity among a third generation of Jews living in Germany in quite diverse ways—Soviet migrants, immigrants from Israel, as well as Jews from the group of German survivors or returnees—and thus creates a space for self-reflection. With its thematic emphasis, the book, which accompanies a conference and an exhibition at the Maxim Gorki Theater, Berlin, is innovative and provocative at the same time.
