About the Event
Much has been written in recent years about the renaissance of Jewish Life in Germany which was primarily caused by a major wave of immigration on part of Jews from the former Soviet Union. While our lecture will explore this phenomenon and its consequences as well, we first and foremost want to attempt to find an answer to the question why Jews were coming back to Germany after World War II. What motives could they have had to return to the "land of the perpetrators"? Join German Historian Anette Isaacs, M.A. as she traces back the long road home that led to a rebirth of Jewish life in her native country.
Anette Isaacs, MA, is a German historian and public educator and has been presenting hundreds of programs on more than 30 different topics (all pertaining to her native country's history, politics, and culture) in the Chicagoland area and in South Florida in the last 12 years. Ms. Isaacs holds Master's Degrees in American Studies, Political Science, and History and is currently the leader of an Academy of Lifelong Learning at Shell Point, the second largest luxury retirement community in the entire USA.
