"This was once our home ..."
Jewish history in the Prussian East
An international conference on Jewish history in the former Prussian East, entitled "This was once our home...", was held November 2-3, 2011. For various reasons, the Jews who lived beyond the Oder or Neisse rivers were forgotten over the decades, particularly because of the Cold War. This volume documents the conference proceedings and the latest research. This work offers insights into the cultural diversity of German-Jewish life and its obliteration, while also describing the few remaining traces and individual forms of remembrance in the territories of modern Poland, the Russian Federation, and Lithuania. The text is supplemented by numerous rare photographs and documents.
