From the Publisher"Jay Howard Geller's book . . . is the best work on the early history of the Jews in Germany—in any language. It supersedes more general overviews that lack documentary support. It supplants German studies . . . 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." Anthony D. Kauders, H-Net Online
"The book is well organized and readers will find much to think about." TULSA World, Judy Randle, World Books Editor
"Gellar does an admirable job of navigating this tangled history. Concise introductions and concluding summaries for each chapter anchor the reader in the process, making it possible to keep track of the key plays and their ever-changing strategies, conflicts, and agendas." American Historical Review Richard S. Levy, University of Illinois, Chicago
"Jews in Post-Holocaust Germany, 1945 - 1953 represents an extremely well researched and readable work that approaches its subject from a qualitative, as oppose to quantitative, perspective....Geller's work is magisterial..."
