Hardback. 347pp. The remarkable and little examined story of the 'last Yiddish moments'. This book tells the story of the Eastern European Jews in the years between the end of the war and the formation of the state of Israel, together with the no less compelling story of the handful of native German Jews who survived the holocaust only to wonder what their national identity really was. A story of identity, art, culture and media as the the groups formed communities in the displaced persons camps. Illustrated with integral black and white photographs throughout.
