(p.1) Introduction
The Legacy of German Jewry

Willi Goetschel

David Suchoff

Fordham University Press

This introductory chapter discusses the coverage of this book, which is about the legacy and history of the German Jewry. This book was first published in 1957, but it seemed then that it was a less than pressing concern to contemporary and Jewish thought. It traces the post-War War II efforts to consolidate Jewish culture, the German Jewry's response to Cold War political pressures, and their efforts to create new forms of national identity and expression. It highlights the accomplishments and challenges faced by the German Jews and the evolution of Judaism.

Keywords:   German Jewry, Jews, Germany, Jewish thought, Cold War, national identity, Judaism, Jewish culture, political pressures
