Aims and Scope
Jewish survivors actively took their fate in their own hands after the Shoah. Despite catastrophic and hostile circumstances, they built networks and communities, fought for justice and started documenting Nazi crimes. Essays, case studies of cities, biographical portraits and numerous illustrations explore the post-war years from a pan-European perspective. The book accompanies the first temporary exhibit of the Jewish Museum Frankfurt.
