Israeli Jews in Contemporary Germany
Suny National Identities
Critically analyzing Israeli-Jewish migration to Germany, A Double Burden combines complementary approaches from the social sciences–quantitative, qualitative, and ethnographic research–to track migrants’ reasons for moving, their families’ reactions, their settlement in the new country, and their social and economic integration, construction of identity, and perceptions of old and new antisemitism in Germany. Each chapter is placed within a relevant theoretical framework, the entire discussion set against the background of present-day international migration in general, migration to Germany in particular, and the Jewish experience in unified Germany. Rich with empirical evidence and presented with exceptional clarity and accessibility, A Double Burden will appeal to scholars of migration studies, the Israeli Diaspora, and German-Jewish life, as it also illuminates trauma and memory among third-generation Holocaust survivors.
