Jay Howard Geller's book, based on his Yale University dissertation, is the best work on the early history of the Jews in post-Holocaust Germany--in any language. It supersedes more general overviews that lack documentary support. It supplants German studies such as Jael Geis¹s Übrig sein--Leben "danach" that amass documentary support but lack focus. And it moves well beyond the many edited volumes whose focus is often one-sided and whose contributions can be particularly spiritless. For anyone wishing to gain an understanding of Jewish life in postwar Germany, Geller is the best place to start.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0521541263, Paperback)

Using archival materials from the Jewish communities of East and West Germany as well as governmental and political party records, Jay Howard Geller analyzes the reestablishment of organized Jewish life in Germany and the Jews' critical ties to political leaders. Whereas the West German community needed to overcome deep cultural, religious, and political differences before uniting, the small Jewish community in Eastern Germany was forced to struggle against communist opposition.
