Prof. Dr. Aron Freimann (1871-1948) was one of the outstanding personalities in the field of Jewish Studies at the beginning of the 20th century. He made the Hebrew and Jewish collections of Frankfurt University Library into one of the most significant holdings of its kind anywhere in Europe and also performed important functions in Frankfurt's Jewish community. The study relates the development of Jewish Studies to the context of Jewish cultural and literary history and represents an important contribution to the history of Jews in Germany prior to the advent of National Socialism.
Many books on Holocaust survivors deal with their lives in the Displaced Persons camps, with memory and remembrance, and with the nature of their testimonies. Representing scholars from different countries and different disciplines such as history, sociology, demography, psychology, anthropology, and literature, this collection explores the survivors' return to everyday life and how their experience of Nazi persecution and the Holocaust impacted their process of integration into various European countries, the United States, Argentina, Australia, and Israel. Thus, it offers a rich mix of perspectives, disciplines, and communities.
