Transforming Memories. Jewish Migration and its Impact on Jewish-German Rememberance.

The end of the Soviet Union marked the beginning of Jewish migrations to Germany, and by that, the resurrection of Jewish communities. Until today, more than 200.000 jews, from the former Soviet Union but also from Israel or the United States, moved to Germany. These migration processes have fundamental impacts on the shape of collective Jewish memories and its functions. Memory content is transformed. New memories are included, others tend to lose their importance. The current research “Transforming Memories: Jewish Migration and Jewish-German remembrance” focuses on these transformations and their consequences.
