Our Courage – Jews in Europe 1945–48

Edited by: Kata Bohus, Atina Grossmann, Werner Hanak and Mirjam Wenzel

After the Shoah, Jewish survivors actively took control of their destiny. Despite catastrophic and hostile circumstances, they built networks and communities, fought for justice, and documented Nazi crimes. The essays, illustrations, and portraits of people and places contained in this volume are informed by a pan-European perspective. The book accompanies the first special exhibition at the re-opened Jewish Museum in Frankfurt.

    • An overview of Jewish experiences in the early postwar period from a pan-European perspective
    • New findings and unpublished photos from Eastern and Western Europe
    • An overall view with historical essays, city as well as person portraits
