Between 1945 and 1950, Allied-occupied Germany became the temporary home for over a quarter of a million surviving Jews. In this ‘waiting room’ of history, the world witnessed the most extraordinary renewal of Jewish life and culture. How do we understand the power and vitality of this rebirth, and what lessons might it hold for our Jewish lives today?
