Jewish Claims against East Germany
Moral Obligations and Pragmatic Policy

Angelika Timm, Humboldt University, Berlin

"I know of no other study that addresses this theme in this depth and in this impartial and fair fashion. Indeed, no other study comes close."
- Stephen Kalberg, Boston University

"Timm fills the vacuum with a detailed, well-written account of negotiations over several decades on restitution to Jewish victims of Nazi persecution - a first-rate work of historical research."
- Choice

This is the first comprehensive history of Jewish negotiations with East Germany regarding restitution and reparations for Nazi war crimes. Angelika Timm analyzes the politics of old and new anti-Semitism and the context in which they grew under the officially propagated ideology of antifascism.

Investigating the mass of unpublished, newly available archival data from the United States, Israel, and the former German Democratic Republic, and more than forty personal interviews, Timm fills a critical gap in the scholarship on postwar Germany. She analyzes the role of the Holocaust and the image of Jews in the historical consciousness and political culture of East Germany and chronicles the efforts of Jewish organizations, especially the Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany, to negotiate reparations with the East German state. The unique relationship between ideology and Realpolitik defined the manner in which East Germany confronted the crimes of its past and allowed anti-Semitism to reemerge.
