  • Post-Holocaust France and the Jews, 1945-1955by Seán Hand; Steven T. Katz

    NYU Press 2015; US$ 36.00

    Despite an outpouring of scholarship on the Holocaust, little work has focused on what happened to Europe?s Jewish communities after the war ended. And unlike many other European nations in which the majority of the Jewish population perished, France had a significant post?war Jewish community that numbered in the hundreds of thousands. Post-Holocaust... more...
