This is the remarkable story of the 250,000 Holocaust survivors who converged on the American Zone of Occupied Germany from 1945 to 1948. They envisaged themselves as the living bridge between destruction and rebirth, the last remnants of a world destroyed and the active agents of its return to life. Much of what has been written to date looks at the Surviving Remnant through the eyes of others and thus has often failed to disclose the tragic complexity of their lives together with their remarkable political and social achievements.

They did not surrender to the deformities of suffering and managed to preserve their humanity intact.

'... Life between Memory and Hope is a compelling achievement that will enrich immeasurably our comprehension of the Holocaust and its aftermath ... Mankowitz's book is virtually in a class of its own, and scholars of German and European history, as well as Jewish and Middle Eastern history, are certain to be enlightened by it.' Michael Berkowitz, H-German 'Life between Memory and Hope is a meticulously researched and well-written study of a period which is often forgotten in the face of the enormous catastrophe before and the Jewish political revival afterwards.' German History '... this is a well-written and well-researched study. It presents an original thesis, which is convincingly argued.' Studies in Contemporary Jewry
