Besorgung - Lieferbarkeit unbestimmt
BeschreibungThis monograph, based on extensive research in many archival collections in the United States, Germany, and lsrael, focuses on the time period from the end of World War II until 1995 and deals with the American Jewish community's ambiguous attitude towards Germany since the Holocaust years. Examining the community's early intercessions with the American administration and its impact on American public opinion and on the West German government, this study develops a picture of ambiguity and denial in a pivotal time in American Jewry. Rationales and strategies of major Jewish organizations are discussed as well as the subsequent rise of Holocaust consciousness and the role of the survivors effect on the tension between special Jewish interests and American national interest.
