(Re)construire dans la division. Aspects de la vie juive à Berlin entre Est et Ouest (1945-1990)

Abstract : For the Jews who had survived the Shoah, to establish of a new life on the German territory after 1945 was almost unthinkable. Particularly in Berlin, the former capital of the third Reich, which became the nodal point of the East-West relations, the attempt seemed most unlikely. As a result, the conception of a community of “liquidation” dominated until the 1950’s. Yet, [re]construction took place, in spite of everything, in the context of the partition of Germany, which didn’t spare the Jewish Community of Berlin. The comparative analysis of the Jews in East- and West-Berlin at the demographic, religious, political and cultural levels does reveal strong disparities, which are more or less linked with the features of the East-German and West-German systems; but beyond these undeniable divides, it is possible to bring to light common values and concerns, as well as forms of crossing which have attracted little scholarly attention so far.
