Jüdische Gemeinde Hannover
»A New Epoch for Jews in Germany«
11.12.2016 – 07.01.2017
Liberation from the concentration camps often marked the beginning of years of searching for the fate of relatives and friends. Those who survived were displaced persons in the Diaspora. A salutation in a letter to relatives in 1945 read: “My dear Americans, Africans, and Chinese!”
How did life continue in the aftermath?
Some Holocaust survivors stayed in Germany.
“I was German, like everybody else, and just had the Jewish religion.” Helmut Fürst, 2007.
Many survivors emigrated.
