Four generations after the Holocaust, Europe’s fastest growing Jewish community faces new challenges, from Günter Grass’s anti-Israel poem What Must Be Said, to furious debate over the legality of circumcision and assaults against Jews in the street. Writers of two generations came to Jewish Book Week 2013 for a keynote discussion on what it means to be Jewish and German today. The discussion raised provocative questions about difference and identity that resonate with all multicultural societies.
