About the Event

It is a little-known fact that right after the end of World War II, over  200,000 Jewish Refugees and Holocaust Survivors found temporary asylum in Germany, of all places. The occupying forces created the so-called DP Camps for these Displaced Persons and helped them to prepare for a future life in the United States and Israel, for example with the creation of training Kibbutzim on German territory. Join German  Historian Anette Isaacs and gain fascinating insights into Jewish Life in immediate Post-War Germany.

German born and raised Anette Isaacs is a Historian and Public Educator who has been presenting hundreds of programs on more than 40 different topics (all pertaining to her native country's history, politics, and culture) all over the United States. Ms. Isaacs studied at Emory  University, the University of Vienna and the Freie Universitaet in Berlin and holds Master's Degrees in American Studies, Political Science, and History. She currently serves as the Arts & Culture Director at the Mandel JCC of the Palm Beaches, one of the most significant Jewish Community Centers in America. She is also the artistic Director of the Palm Beach Jewish Film Festival which traditionally takes place each January in sunny Florida!
